The Andrew McDonough B+ (Be Positive) Foundation
- New York
WHO WE ARE: The Andrew McDonough B+ (Be Positive) Foundation, an IRS registered 501(c)3 charity, was created to honor a 14-year-old star -- on and off the soccer and baseball fields. He bravely battled leukemia with his "Be Positive" attitude and B+ blood type, never leaving the hospital for 167 days, and earning his spot in heaven in July 2007.
The B+ Foundation is one of the largest providers of financial assistance to families of children with cancer nationwide. Additionally, The B+ Foundation sponsors research to find cures for childhood cancers and improve treatment options, and advocates for increased childhood cancer research funding while spreading “The B+ Message” to “Live Like Andrew.” To learn more about The B+ Foundation visit: www.bepositive.org
