Patriots Tee-Off Against Cancer At ‘Andruzzi And Friends Golf Tournament’
" BOSTON (CBS) -  The New England Patriots teed off on Monday, hoping to help knock out cancer.

It was the fourth annual Joe Andruzzi and Friends Golf Tournament at the Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy, all to support the Joe Andruzzi Foundation help cancer patients and their families.

“What we’re about is to help families and those families that are struggling,” said Andruzzi, who battled non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2007. “I was in the NFL for 10 years, other families aren’t as fortunate. I know those walls close in at the hospital; I’m the one getting poked with needles but my wife and kids were going through it too, as many people out there are doing the same thing. Sometimes the caregiver has to leave their job, but the mortgage and the rent still needs to be paid. That’s where our foundation steps in.”

Since the foundation was founded in 2008, Andruzzi has helped more than 100 families with financial assistance, and raised more than $300,000 toward brain cancer research.

Andruzzi and his family became involved in cancer research back in 2003, when they began the C.J. Buckley Cancer Research Fund at Children’s Hospital Boston "
