Andrew's Mom Wants Cancer Funding to Put Kids First
I'm Andrew's Mom, Chris. I watched Andrew battle and ultimately die from leukemia. Now I'm battling breast cancer. While I'm indebted to the researchers and organizations who have made great progress against breast cancer, I believe that kids should come first. If it's a choice between funding cancer research for myself or my son -- I choose my son.
Childhood cancer takes more lives than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, asthma and AIDS combined.
46 children and teens are told they have cancer every school day.
Yet less than 4% of government research funding targets childhood cancer -- and there are 12 major ones.
If you'd like to help us in our fight against childhood cancer, please contact me at Chris@BePositive.org and let's talk about how we can raise funds and awareness in your area.

Please take a look at this work as featured in a Medical News Today article. As you'll see, The B+ Foundation was a lead funder of this research, along with Solving Kids Cancer and the Pierce Phillips Charity.
