We’re helping kids fight cancer through…

Family Assistance

Family Assistance

The Andrew McDonough B+ (Be Positive) Foundation is one of the largest providers of financial assistance to families of kids with cancer nationwide.

 

The B+ Foundation has helped thousands of families being treated at over 240 U.S. hospitals. Thanks to your generous support, we have been able to lessen the financial burden so families can focus on what’s most important — their child’s health. Scroll down the homepage to learn more.

Cancer Research

Research

The B+ Foundation is proud to support cutting-edge childhood cancer research across the country.  A few of the world-class institutions that have received our support include Seattle Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber/Harvard Medical Center, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Children’s Oncology Group, the leading childhood cancer research organization in the country, has been a beneficiary of our support as well.  This is a time of great discovery in childhood cancer research. We owe it to the children — those 46 kids who are diagnosed each school day — to seize this opportunity.

Capitol Hill

Advocacy

The B+ Foundation is one of the Co-Founders of the Coalition Against Childhood Cancer (CAC2) and a member of the Alliance for Childhood Cancer.

These groups are the preeminent, national collaborations of childhood cancer charities and medical professional groups, who advocate for greater awareness of childhood cancer and significantly increased federal and private sector funding of childhood cancer research.

On Friday, Eisenhower Intermediate School (NJ) held their bi-annual B+ fundraiser and they raised $10,545.  On a personal level, even more moving to me was seeing the bulletin boards in the hallway.  One detailed the history and mission of The B+ Foundation while the other had little B+ tee shirt cut-outs and the students wrote on them how they planned to “Live Like … Keep Reading
