“Dear B+ Foundation, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us pay our mortgage. When Noah was diagnosed at just 8 months old, our world crumbled.

“Dear B+ Foundation, Thank you so much for the contribution toward Luis’s medical expenses. Since Luis was diagnosed with leukemia at 4 years old, life has been a scary roller-coaster ride. It is people like you who help us get through the tougher times, and for that, we will be forever grateful.
Luis is still too young to understand the impact that cancer has had on us as a family – emotionally, physically, and financially – and we try to lead as ‘normal’ a life as possible to keep us strong. But, our lives have been forever changedanditgivesusstrength to know that there is an extended family through your program who care about us and understand the difficulties we face. Thank you so much!”

“We cannot express the extent of our gratitude for the generosity of B+. We have relocated approximately 2.5 hours from our home for six weeks of our daughter’s treatment. During this time, I am taking an unpaid leave of absence from work. This has allowed our family to continue life as normal as possible and still keep up with our mortgage back home. Audrey is a strong 3-year-old girl. She is energetic and usually spends her time playing with her 5-year-old brother. Thank you for your support during this very trying time!”

“Dear B+ Foundation, Our daughter Hannah is a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse and she had planned on working this past summer to help pay her tuition and other expenses related to school, however, the lymphoma discovered in her pelvis had other plans for her.
Hannah spent approximately 35 nights in the hospital undergoing very aggressive chemotherapy treatment, but I am happy to say that she had her post-treatment PET scan and there were no signs of the tumor! From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for all you do to support those coping and dealing with childhood cancer. "

Nash is 2 years old and was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma. He loves cars and trucks and dreams of the day no cancer exists. YOUR support has directly helped Nash and his family.
“Thank you, B+ for helping our family in such a time of need. When we were welcoming our beautiful baby boy two years ago, we could have never imagined that there was cancer already overtaking his tiny body and that we would find out only three short months later that he had stage IV neuroblastoma. This caused many unexpected life changes. I had to leave my career in order to take care of him and attend all of his appointments and hospitalizations. My husband had to take most of the year off work, unpaid, to be there as well and help care for our healthy 7-year-old. The first year was a blur and right when the medical bills started coming in, nearly all of our friend and family support dropped off because Nash was finishing chemo and they were all just tired of the ride...as were we. It wasn't until then, that we were able to take the first break and try to put the pieces of life back together, only to find the stress of new debt that accumulated while neither of us were being paid as well as the first medical bills from the previous year of treatment were starting to arrive. If it hadn't been for B+, we would not have been able to put food on the table for our kids or gas in our car due to having to keep our water and electricity on. This should never be the case but it's the situation in which we found ourselves and I know so many other people dealing with pediatric cancer diagnoses do as well.
Thank you SO MUCH for supporting our family and giving us hope at that time in our journey when it felt like we were alone. Please continue to support B+ so that they can support families like ours! The last thing a parent, who's managing a cancer diagnosis with their child needs to worry about is money, groceries or bills. They are and should be focused on keeping their child alive. Thank you for allowing them to do more of that."
-Brandi, Nash’s mom

“Dear B+, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you so much for youhelp with our mortgage bill – it meant so much to us.

We were finally able to return home after Samuel’s radiation treatments and the twins are now together again! Samuel is doing well and in physical, occupation and speech therapy. The doctor advised that it is going to take years, but he is learning fast. HIs twin brother Andre is a great supporter and Samuel is learning a lot from him. Thank you all again and God Bless!"

We sincerely thank you for blessing our home with such a generous gift. Because of your gift, we can secure our home for a little longer. There is no better name for this foundation – we will B+ one day at a time!”
