The V Foundation for Cancer Research was started in 1993 to honor Jim Valvano. From very humble beginnings of Jim's personal friends and family, The Foundation grew. Today, that circle of friends has expanded and the support structure of The Foundation includes people of all walks of life, those who knew Jim personally, those who knew of Jim and many who have joined the cause simply because they believe in the possibility of Jim's final wish - to fund research to find cures for cancer.
Today over 12 million people are Cancer Survivors. We plan on raising 1 million dollars for a Pediatric Cancer research grant.
To make an individual donation to benefit a family member or friend that is a cancer survivor or just to simply help us reach our goal of 1 million dollars, please send your donation made payable to the V FOUNDATION to: Dick Vitale, Inc., 7810 Mathern Court, Bradenton, FL 34202
I thank you from the bottom of my heart as your dollars will help us immensely in reaching Jimmy's goal of stamping out this disease. MORE INFORMATION about the V Foundation.
