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.
