The B+ Foundation provides desperately needed services to the victims of childhood cancer and is taking great strides in funding research into the cure for childhood cancer, the number #1 killer disease of children under the age of 19.

Unless you have been through the experience of childhood cancer, you can not imagine it. I lost my 14 year old son, AJ, to childhood cancer.

As a fellow childhood cancer advocate I work closely with Joe McDonough from B+ and can emphatically state that his head and heart are both entirely focused on making a dramatic difference for children and families enduring this incredibly rough road.

Please support the B+ Foundation and it helps children and families battling childhood cancer.

I met Joe McDonough at the beginning of 2011. I was impressed by his devotion and dedication to helping fight kids cancer. His compassion and empathy for families going through an unimaginably difficult and life-changing experience is genuine. In a few short years, the B+ Foundation has done good work to heighten public awareness of childhood cancer and been a leader to help educate, raise funds and work towards better treatment and funding and hopefully one day eradicating this disease.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Witnessing first-hand their compassion for families fighting kids cancer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do more to help get the word out.

The B+ Foundation is a great organization! I'm wasn't a huge soccer fan but I am now thanks to Andrew. His story touched me through my boyfriend who played soccer against Andrew. Following Andrews death I got the chance to meet his father at a Student Government meeting and really became interested in this foundation and helped promote it to my family, friends, and people who just asked about his t-shirts I was wearing. I went to Florida and had people ask me about my t-shirt and I was surely happy to tell Andrew's story. Not only does the B+ Foundation have a great meaning behind their logo, but they have helped so many cancer children and their families! I highly suggest getting to know this foundation and becoming a part of the fun!!
