ESPY Speech

Jim Valvano announced the beginning of the V Foundation for Cancer Research during his unforgettable speech at the ESPYS on March 4, 1993.

His message was simple: Cancer research needs our support.

While our lives are filled today with stories of cancer patients we love, imagine a world tomorrow without cancer. Without cancer patients. Without lives being stolen.

That world is possible tomorrow only by funding cancer research today. Cancer research saves lives today and provides hope for the future. Today’s research leads to the standard treatment of care tomorrow. There are more ideas than funding, meaning there is zero waste in any of your dollars.

Jim passed shortly after his speech, but his words, his spirit, his optimism, his presence live on.
