The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) believes in providing cancer patients not only with help and hope through financial assistance but also a reason to smile. JAF’s Wellness Assistance allows patients and their families activities to reduce stress and create more positive memories 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 constantly being created.

Mind-Body Opportunities

In addition to events, JAF, through its partnership with the Randi Friedman Wellness Fund (RFWF), provides resources for 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. Most recently, JAF held a virtual women’s retreat for more than 20 attendees.
