Jim Valvano spoke these famous when he accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 1993 ESPYs. He was an outgoing, charismatic, successful basketball coach. Eariler that year, Jim was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 46.
Watch Jimmy V's acceptance speech. It's part of the slideshow. You won't find anything more courageous or inspirational.
The Jimmy V Foundation invests in young physician/scientists to help establish their careers and develop into promising future researchers.
Jim Valvano lost his battle with cancer less than two months after delivering the ESPY speech, but his dream of a cure lives on. Although we have not yet achieved this goal, every day we get a little bit closer and will continue to honor his inspiring words, “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”
Please join me in donating money to the Jimmy V Foundation so we may help those in need and one day find a cure for cancer. Thank you for your support!
