The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation was born out of tragedy after athlete and 'A' student Andrew McDonough passed away from complications of leukemia on July 14th 2007, at age 14. Andrew's blood type and the family's motto was, and continues to be, "B+"... "Be Positive". The overall goal of The B+ Foundation is to "Do Good." Our primary objectives are:

- Sponsor research to find cures for pediatric cancers and improved treatment protocols. In 2011, we awarded $270,000 in research grants and in the first half of 2012, we awarded a $140,000 research grant to the Pediatric Cancer Genome Project at St. Jude.

- Provide assistance to families of children with cancer nationwide. In 2011 alone, we provided over $500,000 to families.

-Keep the B+ Mission alive! Andrew taught us to have fun, show affection, set goals and try our best, appreciate all the blessings that we have, and to keep our lives in perspective. And, to make time for our loved ones. In short, we need to Live Like Andrew.
