What drove you to join the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
My immediate and extended family have had multiple journeys with cancer. As a result of those experiences, I feel so lucky to be a part of an organization that can lighten the burden for others who must face all the challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis. Knowing that I could play even a small part in expanding JAF’s impact is highly motivating.
What is your favorite thing about working for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
My favorite thing about working at JAF is that I am part of such a great team. My colleagues are all hardworking, dedicated, and focused while still being supportive of each other and ready to share a smile throughout the day.
