The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation honors the life of 14-year-old Andrew who battled leukemia and sepsis before leaving us on July 14, 2007. Andrew’s B+ blood type became the perfect message – Be Positive – to reflect how Andrew lived his life and how he inspires others to do the same.
The B+ Foundation is about kids helping kids fight cancer — by providing financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer, and by providing childhood cancer research grants.
In addition to furthering the “B+” (Be Positive) legacy of the Foundation’s 14 year old namesake, the Foundation aims to meet the financial and moral support needs of the underserved population of families of children with cancer. Additionally, the Foundation aims to find and fund cutting edge childhood cancer research and discoveries in improved treatment protocols. Finally, The B+ Foundation is engaged in advocacy efforts to increase awareness and funding in the battle against childhood cancers.
The B+ Foundation funds critical childhood cancer research and also assists families financially. We will work with you to tailor a fundraising project to meet your needs and interests. We have had children and teens organize all types of events such as walks, runs, dance marathons at their schools, bake sales, donation drives, and so many more! We will partner with you to find a meaningful way to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer. Check out our website for ideas here!
