The Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation was established Sept. 5, 2001, after Dean Randazzo, New Jersey’s most successful professional surfer, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. His life was profoundly changed by the diagnosis and since then, he has faced many obstacles undergoing treatment. Now a cancer survivor, Randazzo continues to give back and raise awareness for families in the community.Since its inception, the foundation has raised more than $1 million to help people affected by cancer.
