Welcome to SportsNation! On Friday, BYU head coach Dave Rose stops by to help celebrate Jimmy V Week here at ESPN.

In the 18 years since The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded by ESPN and Jim Valvano, the foundation has raised more than $100 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.

Since becoming head coach of the BYU men's basketball program in 2005, Rose has guided the Cougars to a 97-34 record. He is the only BYU men's basketball coach to ever win MWC Coach of the Year honors in back-to-back seasons. Last June, Rose was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer after feeling faint on a family vacation. He initially had surgery to remove his spleen and part of his pancreas, as well as a procedure to remove the cancerous tumor. He is now in remission.

Send your questions now and join Rose Friday at 3 p.m. ET!
