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


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


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.

Last night, there was a special guest at the Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers game - B+ Hero Jibril. Jibby got to tour the Wells Fargo Center, got to sit court-side pre-game and got a visit from the 76ers mascot, Franklin.

Notes from Joe

7 Day Challenge!!!

The HOPEtember® Challenge! 7 days are left of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. 7 children will die from cancer each of those 7 days! $7,000 fundraising goal on www.BePositive.org in the next 7 days. Can we do it?   Let’s put some HOPE in September and every month for all of our innocent kids.  I was asked by a media outlet yesterday “what can people outside of the cancer community do to help?”  I was struck by that question.  If you think that kids should get a chance to grow up, then you’re “inside” the community. Is the reality of kids getting cancer scary?  Hell yes!  But, we have a choice — put our heads in the sand and pretend it’s going to go away or that someone (government, private sector, other people) else will take care of it, or do something. Let’s do this!   Ali’s & Andrew’s … Keep... read more

Secret Service Apologizes for Kicking Us Out

As many of you know (I hope), September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  This past week, I represented B+ Nation in Washington, DC for the Congressional Pediatric Cancer Caucus on Friday morning followed by a meeting at the White House on Friday afternoon. On Saturday/Sunday, The B+ Foundation was one of the sponsors of CureFest, an event to raise awareness of childhood cancers.  Following our Welcome Event on Saturday afternoon, we headed to Lafayette Park (across from the White House) for a program and candlelight vigil.  Please see the Washington Post article for how that unfolded.  On Sunday, we were part of an event on the National Mall. The childhood cancer community is getting a lot of press and sympathy for how the Secret Service treated us.  While I like the attention to our cause, a lot of people are missing the point and this will pass in the next … Keep... read more
