Jim Valvano was an American college basketball coach and broadcaster. At the young age of 46, Jim was diagnosed with cancer. He was passionate and committed to finding cures for cancer. As a former coach, he began to recruit his team of family and friends to lead the V Foundation in his quest to eradicate the disease.
Although Jim lost his battle with cancer, his dream to find cures lives on through research grants bestowed in his name. The V Foundation has awarded more than $115 million to more than 120 facilities nationwide and proudly awards 100% of direct cash donations to cancer research and related programs.
