Keynote Speaker Announced
We are incredibly excited to showcase our Stowe Weekend of Hope 2020 Keynote Speaker Joe Andruzzi!
Founded in 2008 by former New England Patriots three-time Super Bowl-winning offensive guard Joe Andruzzi and his wife Jen, the Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) grew out of Joe’s own successful battle with cancer and the couple’s ongoing work within the cancer community. In 2007, Joe was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Burkitt’s lymphoma, ending his football career. Joe remains cancer free today, but a new passion grew from his own cancer experience: helping other patients and their families. After witnessing first-hand, the financial stress cancer can cause, Joe and Jen created a foundation to help cancer patients and their families meet life’s day-to-day challenges. The Joe Andruzzi Foundation provides assistance to cancer patients of all ages throughout New England who have fallen on financial hardships as a result of their diagnosis.
