Pam Valvano Strasser: “It was BETTER than OK!”Find out more
Jim Valvano is remembered for being many things: a player, a coach, a broadcaster, a brother, husband and father, a friend and more. But above all he is an inspiration. And when diagnosed with cancer at age 46, he never gave up. Although he lost his own battle with cancer, he wanted to make sure no one had to go through the disease again. He formed the V Foundation to fund cutting-edge research to help finally declare victory over cancer. It's a legacy that has affected, and will continue to affect, millions of people around the world.
