The V Foundation is an incredibly significant, transparent organization that seeks to forward Jimmy V's message of relentless perseverance in the fight against cancer. The charity transfers 100% of the contributions they receive to cancer research and cancer awareness-related events. If you are looking to give to a good cause and honor the memory of a vibrant human being who sought to better himself and those around him, give to the V Foundation and help continue the fight against cancer.
