Welcome to SportsNation! On Wednesday, Nick Valvano stops by to help celebrate Jimmy V Week here at ESPN.

In the 16 years since The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded by ESPN and Jim Valvano, the foundation has raised more than $90 million. The V Foundation started with the dream of Valvano, the former NC State basketball coach and award-winning broadcaster, as he battled cancer. For more information, or to donate to the V Foundation, call 1-800-4-JimmyV or go here. Every cent of every donation goes directly to cancer research.

Nick Valvano has served as CEO of the V Foundation since March 1999 and has been a member of the board of directors since its inception. He previously served in several management positions at Olivetti North America from 1986 to 1998, including Vice President, Business Development from 1997 to 1998, Vice President, Sales from 1990 to 1996 and Eastern Region General Manager from 1986 to 1990.

Send your questions now and join Valvano Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET!
