In Memoriam: Drew Cullen
In the Summer of 2016, the Bpositiv foundation lost it's volunteer Vice President at age 37. Drew Cullen was a founding member and friend of the Bpositiv foundation and the Pite family and he was also a personal friend of our daughter, Hannah.
Drew's unwavering commitment to helping others will remain an inspiration to his friends and his loved ones. The children and families of childhood cancer lost an incredible advocate and hero to their cause. We will continue to fight in his memory and continue to help the families of childhood cancer in Oregon. We will miss you Drew. You were a great friend. You were a tireless contributor. The world lost a great man.
