The CLIMB (Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery) program is returning to the Lewiston Dempsey Center starting starting in July and will be held every Thursday evening from 4:00-6:00 PM, from 7/14 through 8/18.

THE JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation is committed to providing assistance to patients of all ages throughout New England who have fallen on financial hardships as a result of a cancer diagnosis. In many cases, these patients and/or family members are unable to work because of declining health and treatment. The Joe Andruzzi Foundation understands that crucial living expenses are not put on hold because of a diagnosis, and JAF’s Financial Assistance Program specifically targets and fulfills patients who are struggling to make ends meet.
Because patients and families must often devote all of their energy and resources towards battling the disease, the Foundation helps alleviate financial and emotional stress by providing grants to assist with rent/mortgage payments, utilities, and other household expenses. This relief allows the Foundation’s grant recipients to focus on their fight against cancer and not on the financial distress that comes with it.
Financial Assistance Program applications must be submitted through our online application system by a social worker, patient navigator, resource specialist, or other similar role. Patients should contact their social worker for assistance completing an application.
