A Little Interruption
While this time of year is normally known as the countdown to Selection Sunday- we interrupt this college basketball season for a week of the NBA.
For one week- the NBA, ESPN, The V Foundation and St. Jude Children’s Hospital are coming together to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer research. Through March 4, you can donate to the promotion here.
The V Foundation funds three different types of grants: V Scholar, Translational and Designated grants. In the past The V Foundation has awarded $2.1 million dollars in V Scholar and Translational grants to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in the past.
This year an estimated 12,060 children between the ages of 1-14 will be diagnosed with cancer. While the survival rates for the many different types of pediatric cancer are on the rise, is there any number acceptable besides 100%?
Help The V Foundation and its partners fight pediatric cancer and enjoy professional basketball at the same time!
