The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) believes in not only providing patients and their families with help and hope through financial assistance but also a reason to smile. JAF’s Wellness opportunities allow patients and their families activities to reduce stress and create more positive moments together.

(Up)Beat Events

(Up)Beat Events have included riding on the Boston Harbor Cruises’ Codzilla (a high-speed boat in Boston Harbor), attending Disney on Ice shows, and sporting events. Some events are even virtual – such as bingo, trivia, and gingerbread house-building events – allowing for safe participation and greater accessibility. New and unique activities and events are always being created.

Meditation and Yoga Opportunities

In addition to events, JAF provides other resources through its partnership with the Randi Friedman Wellness Fund (RFWF), an organization that provides patients with mind-body practices such as yoga, meditation, art therapy and journaling. Founded in memory of Massachusetts resident Randi Friedman, the RFWF has offered emotional and physical support to hundreds of patients since 2018.
