We thought we were sitting down to just relax and watch some college basketball. Boy, were we wrong! We were watching the tournament to benefit the Jimmy V foundation for cancer research. They showed his speech at the ESPY's in 1993 which I have never seen before. With all the involvement that we have had with Team in Training, and all the inspirational speeches from those who were affected by cancer, it just seems that now, this powerful speech meant too much to us now as we have a close friend who just lost her father to lung cancer. Jimmy V said a few things that I will restate. He said, in order to live a complete life, you should laugh, think, and show emotion every day. He said that cancer could not ever touch his heart, his sole, or his mind. And he said, "Don't give up, don't ever give up!" WOW!
