Former Patriots guard Joe Andruzzi, a member of all three of New England's Super Bowl champions, helped victims Monday at the Boston Marathon attack site.

Here he's shown carrying a woman away from the scene of the accident. The picture was part of a gallery on the CNN Web site.

Andruzzi, a cancer survivor, heads the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, which -- according to its mission statement -- "is tackling cancer’s impact by providing financial assistance for patients and their families as well as funding pediatric brain cancer research." His Team JAF sponsored runners at yesterday's Marathon to raise funds for the fight against cancer.

Two of his brothers -- both New York City firefighters -- survived the 9/11 attacks; they were among the responders at the World Trade Center. The Patriots honored the Andruzzi brothers prior to game immediately after that attack.
