We’re helping kids fight cancer through…
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.
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.
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.

Notes from Joe
Yup…he did it! My friend, Dave Corydon, rode his recumbent bike 5,000 miles to raise awareness and money for The B+ Foundation. And, he did it alone. And, if that’s not enough, this is the SECOND time he’s done it for us. The first time was when we were in the hospital with Andrew and Dave rode West-to-East. This time, he started from home in NJ…only fitting because Andrew and Ali were born in New Jersey! Dave raised well over $4,000 to help families of kids with cancer. Simply amazing. Dave, thank you so much and thank you to his wife, Lesley, and daughter, Lindsey, for your support of this mission.
