Every year, 12,000 to 15,000 children are newly diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. Through the efforts of The V Foundation, progress is being made with cure rates for most pediatric cancers dramatically improving. The V Foundation has awarded nearly $20 million through 66 pediatric research grants to-date, including more than $5 million to pediatric cancer research in 2015.
The V Foundation has a strong presence in the scientific community, and it is guided by an elite, all-volunteer Scientific Advisory Committee, that recommends the research projects funded. The Committee is comprised of top physicians and research scientists from prominent universities and cancer centers throughout the country. Working with this team of talented professionals, Jimmy V is proud to carry out Jim’s vision for the future.
