6.29.23 note: JAF is not accepting Extraordinary Needs applications at this time. Please check back again.
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) Extraordinary Needs Assistance was originally established in partnership with One Mission (OM) to provide New England cancer patients and their families with a one-time grant of up to $4,000 for project-based needs that present a barrier to treatment for a patient such as fertility preservation, dental work, and required home improvement projects needed to provide the patient with high-priority necessities. Past examples of needs granted to patients include a down payment for a car so the family could have reliable transportation to treatment and a Peloton bike a patient used for rehabilitation purposes.
To qualify for the JAF-OM Pediatric Extraordinary Needs Fund, patients must be between the ages of 0 and 18 and be in active treatment. Patients work directly with their social worker, patient navigator, resource specialist, or another healthcare professional familiar with their treatment to apply.
