Help Us Get a DE Childhood Cancer License Plate
We need 200 applications to petition the State of Delaware for a Childhood Cancer license plate, as many other states already have. Once we have shown interest (by submitting 200 applications), we can begin to design the license plate -- the one at left is just a mock-up. PLEASE submit an application -- there's no cost at this time. Click here for more information and to PRINT OUT THE APPLICATION. Then share this with your Delaware friends and family.

B+ Research Grants Yield Results
- Funding from B+ has supported clinical trials at the Seattle Children's Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research where they currently have 4 patients in remission from a recurrence of ALL.
- An article appeared in the January 2013 issue of Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, about some exciting work being done by Dr. Ken Lucas and his team. Please take a look at this work as featured in a Medical News Today article. As you'll see, The B+ Foundation was a lead funder of this research, along with Solving Kids Cancer and the Pierce Phillips Charity.
