Our Special Projects
With Your Support V for Victory Continues to Grow In the Many Way We Serve Local Families
Although the majority of our work is coordinating everyday direct services we are able to deliver special projects and programs as we continue to grow.
The VICTORY cart is a physical coffee cart fully stocked with items (coffee, tea, etc) for families on the oncology unit (Weaver 4) at Wolfson’s Children’s hospital. The VICTORY cart’s “Cup of Comfort” is a gesture to families that they are not alone in this fight, that there is a community here to support them. It also serves as a way of introducing ourselves to families so that we might be able to provide valuable resources to them throughout their cancer journey. Help keep this cart stocked all year long!
Imerman Angels Mentorship Program
V for Victory has partnered with Imerman Angels to support our local V for Victory families being matched with a one-on-one support system as they navigate their cancer journey.

Bricks of Love
LEGO group donated over 6500 LEGO Sets to V for Victory in October of 2021. This project aims to change the narrative for children in treatment for cancer by providing something positive for them to look forward to after every doctors visit. Whether it’s bloodwork, a scan, a port injection or any other cancer related treatment, every child receiving treatment at Nemours will receive a LEGO set after every appointment. Connect with us to learn more about this program!
VICTORY in Learning scholarship program
Two scholarships are available to a child experiencing challenges academically since the cancer diagnosis of a parent or sibling living in the household. The first GradePower Learning VICTORY scholarship was made possible by a direct donation from GradePower Learning. The second ‘Pat Canty VICTORY’ Scholarship was made possible by the generosity of individuals and FloridaBlue in honor of a beloved local cancer warrior Pat Canty.
Our Business Partners
Our Work Would Not Be Possible Without You
We provide opportunities for local business owners to give back to families in need.
We have a vision, that every individual and family in our community who is struggling with everyday demands while battling cancer will be supported and uplifted by other members within their community. If every business in Northeast Florida signed up to provide just one service or product one time a month, we could make that vision a reality together!
This is the Impact our Partners Make Every Day:
“The restaurant gift cards are great! Always making it easy to ask for help. We love you all and are beyond blessed by your gifts. You are always finding unique ways to help.”
