Fun Facts About Bryan

Bryan's Charity of Choice

“The V Foundation: Established by Jim Valvano, their mission is to fund Cancer research to help find cures.  This is important to me because too many lives are lost each year to this horrible disease and it has taken people and animals close to me.  The famous speech by Mr. Valvano before he lost his battle with cancer was also very impactful and the words ‘Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.’ are ingrained in my memory.”
