Former Patriots player is there for cancer patients

The couple — he a giant of a man at 6 foot 3 inches and around 300 pounds at his playing weight , she tall and elegant — say they will be giving gifts year-round, as they have for more than four years through the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, the nonprofit they founded in 2008 to help families of cancer patients pay their day-to-day bills.
