The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation honors the memory of Andrew McDonough, a 14 year old athlete and ‘straight A’ student from Wilmington, Delaware. Andrew went from playing four soccer games on January 27, 2007 to cardiac arrest and a diagnosis of leukemia and sepsis just 48 hours later. Andrew’s blood type and the family’s motto was, and continues to be, “B+” …“Be Positive”. Andrew’s valiant journey was chronicled by local and national media and his website received over 1,000,000 hits in the first six months. Andrew went to Heaven on July 14, 2007

Throughout Andrew's illness, he inspired thousands of friends and family members. His B+ blood type became the perfect message -- BE POSITIVE -- to reflect how Andrew lived his life and how he inspired others to do the same. Many people have found inspiration in Andrew and are now having a positive impact on the lives of others by following the B+ mission: "Do Good."

Our 3 objectives:
1. Do Good by providing financial support to families in crisis as a result of a child's illness.
2. Do Good by contributing money for medical research into cures for pediatric cancers and related illnesses, and improved chemotherapy.
3. Do Good by sharing the lessons Andrew taught us: have fun, have faith, appreciate your blessings, and make time for the ones you love. Spreading the B+ message.


You can visit our site at www.BePositive.org for more information or to help support our objectives.

Chris,
I went to the B+ website and tried to order shirts, but unfortunately I don't have a credit card. Is it possible to somehow pay by check?

Hi Chris,

My best to you. If you would like, I can add B+ to the list of groups here.....thanks for joining, and welcome to PAC2. We are a community of parents, friends, survivors, medical professionals, childhood cancer organizations (CureSearch, Alex's Lemonade Stand, St. Baldrick's, Make-A-Wish and others) and concerned citizens, all with the same mission - eradicate Childhood Cancer.

We will grow, organize and plan, and take ACTION as one voice united against childhood cancer.

My first initiative was the Childhood Cancer Awareness Petition. The Petition was started before Stand Up 2 Cancer, and now has over 17,000 signatures with the objective to have a nationwide major media event bringing awareness to Childhood Cancer. To be childhood cancer's "Inconvenient Truth" moment.

The format is unique. You can have friends, post photos and videos, blog, participate in Forum discussions, start Groups about your interest, chat live with other members, promote fundraisers or join a Group that is focused on your interests in childhood cancer.

While all those features are nice, it still takes ACTION. This is truly the reason PAC2 started. Each day or so, we feature ideas for members in the golden boxes on the home page. This is where you can help by taking action. You can get started with these ideas.

I look forward to your contributions and ideas, and working together in the future. Thanks again for being here, I am sorry you have to be............AJs Dad

Hi Chris. Everytime I see that gorgeous face, I have no other choice but to smile and B+. Alexa loves Andrew's shirt and wears it often, even if it does come down to her knees. :0) Together, we can spread awareness-your family has done an exceptional job at doing that! Hugs to all from 'Team Moore'
