Remembering Stuart Scott
Stuart Scott embodied passion. Like his friend Jim Valvano, he desperately wanted to claim victory over cancer. And he fought, not only for himself, but for those segments of the population disproportionately impacted by the disease. Stuart's passion continues.
Victory over cancer
"Don't give up ... Don't ever give up!"® These words by Jim Valvano serve as the guidepost for the V Foundation for Cancer Research. Founded by Jim and ESPN, the V Foundation supports doctors, researchers and more in their quest to beat cancer once and for all. Jim believed it was possible. And with your help, we move closer to his dream every day.
