History

After the death of his mother, Betty, from breast cancer in 1999, NKOTB member Danny Wood searched for a way to keep her memory alive. During his solo career, he partnered with well known breast cancer charities to help raise funds for breast cancer research & early detection. The return of NKOTB in 2008 gave Danny a larger audience for the story of his mother and her fight against breast cancer. Fans began walking & raising money directly for these charities at breast cancer awareness races across the US and Canada in 2009. Rallying behind their brother, the members of NKOTB created pink ribbon items to sell during their reunion tour. Using his mother’s memory as inspiration, Danny released a solo album, ‘Stronger: Remember Betty’, with all proceeds being donated directly to a well known breast cancer charity.

2015 sees us launching our own charity in an effort to provide direct financial support for breast cancer patients and survivors so that they may focus on recovery & quality of life.
