How to Help Kids With Cancer
Everyone is Capable of Helping Kids Fight Cancer
Your donations really add up. They enable us to write checks to buy gas for hospital visits hours away, or to buy medicine that insurance won’t cover.
The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation® relies on the help of thousands of supporters like you nationwide. Through your generous contributions of time, talent, and treasure, we have been able to provide financial and emotional assistance to thousands of families of children with cancer in every state. And we’ve provided research grants to support cutting-edge childhood cancer research in world-class institutions including Seattle Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber/Harvard Medical Center, Nemours Center for Childhood Cancer Research, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
