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.

When Andrew was 8-years-old, he wrote: "To Mom & Dad: Thank you for raising me. You did a great job. You are the best. I love you! Love, Andrew McDonough"

Happy Thanksgiving, B+ Nation. While we miss Andrew tremendously, we are thankful...

A Lot to be Thankful For

I apologize for not being more frequent with my updates.  It’s not that there’s nothing going on…it’s actually quite the opposite.  We’ve been very busy! “Kids Helping Kids Fight Cancer”® Schools — this is a busy time of year as some students do their B+ events in the Fall, but most are hard at work planning their Spring events.  Here’s a sampling of the schools that have done recent events: University of Alabama Northeastern University Washington & Jefferson University of Texas – Sigma Chi Fight Night University of California – San Diego Sanford School – Hockessin, DE I’ve had the pleasure of speaking at two Delaware elementary schools in the last few weeks – McVey Elementary (Newark, DE) and St. Peter’s (New Castle, DE).  I always like talking with kids…no offense, adults, but the kids ask MUCH better questions!     Both schools are working on events to help us fight childhood … Keep... read more

In Memoriam…B+ Hero, Lisa Marie

Two days ago, I got the text that I was fearing, but kind of expecting. B+ Hero, Lisa Marie, a 5 year old girl paired with Alpha Epsilon Phi at the University of Texas, passed away from a brain tumor.  As you’ll see in the picture, Carly and I had the privilege of joining Lisa Marie in September as her AEPhi “sisters” threw her a birthday party.  The timing worked out really well for us as we were already scheduled to be in Austin for several talks and meetings.  My heart goes out to Lisa Marie’s family and her adopted family at AEPhi.  How many children dying is too many???   Ali & Andrew’s Dad www.caringbridge.org/visit/andrewmcdonough… Keep... read more
