Jimmy Valvano's 1993 ESPY Speech: Don't give up, don't ever give up!
"The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded in 1993 by ESPN and the late Jim Valvano, legendary North Carolina State basketball coach and ESPN commentator. Since 1993, The Foundation has raised more than $115 million to fund cancer research grants nationwide. It awards 100 percent of all new direct cash donations and net proceeds of events directly to cancer research and related programs. The Foundation awards grants through a competitive awards process strictly supervised by a Scientific Advisory Board. For more information on The V Foundation or to make a donation, please visit www.jimmyv.org."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The Vitality Doctor's Commentary...
This speech is so truly uplifting and inspirational, with a solid message about living life fully today - now! And whether we are cancer patients - or survivors - or even caregivers of loved ones on the cancer journey, Jimmy's three essential daily words or keys are the foundation for a significant and meaningful life:
LAUGH, THINK, CRYAnd the way he explains them are as simple, yet as powerful, as the words themselves. So for a fulfilling and meaningful day (I've added my own cmments in brackets):
Laugh everyday! (Remember to laugh at yourself!)
Where we started
And don't give up, don't ever give up!Live everyday of your life fully, confidently and completely with (and you're gonna LOVE this!):
Emotion, Passion, Hugs, Kisses, and LoveCancer can take away our bodies, but as Jimmy states: It cannot touch our minds, our hearts and our souls - they live on forever! ~~~~
