The V Foundation for Cancer Research
After being diagnosed with cancer at the young age of 46, Jim Valvano dreamed of finding the cure. Passionate and committed, Jim and ESPN formed the V Foundation for Cancer Research. As a former coach, he began to recruit his team of family and friends to lead The Foundation in his quest to eradicate the disease.
Although Jim lost his battle with cancer less than two months after delivering his world famous ESPY speech, his dream to find cures lives on through research grants bestowed in his name. The V Foundation has awarded more than $130 million to more than 120 facilities nationwide and proudly awards 100% of direct cash donations to cancer research and related programs.
Jim’s dream of finding cures for cancer is shared by millions. Although we have not yet achieved this goal, every day we get a little bit closer and continue to honor his inspiring words, “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”
