In this week’s episode of the “CURE Talks Cancer” podcast, we spoke with ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale on his passion as a longtime champion to achieve victory over cancer.

In sports, there is a particular passion for winning. ESPN college basketball broadcaster Dick Vitale shares that same passion for winning, but off the court.

As a longtime champion to achieve victory over cancer, Dick has been helping the V Foundation in its mission for a cure since the beginning, focusing his efforts specifically on pediatric cancer research.

After helping the late Jim Valvano on to the stage at the 1993 ESPYS to make his iconic speech to never give up, Dick has since raised millions of dollars for pediatric cancer research — helping the V Foundation in awarding nearly $50 million specifically to the cause.

In this episode, Dick spoke to CURE® about Jimmy V and his involvement with the V Foundation, how inspiration from his 5-year old neighbor diagnosed with brain cancer has furthered his mission to fight pediatric cancer, and why others, too, should never give up in fighting the disease.
