    For the past seven years, ESPN has stood alongside The V Foundation and supported the renowned organization’s mission to fight cancer and find a cure for the devastating disease.

    This past year, the ESPN team reached a new milestone during the annual Jimmy V Week for Cancer Research in December. The network set a new fundraising record of $1.8 million—$1,827,000 to be exact—in contributions for The V Foundation, surpassing the previous record of $1.59 million set in 2012. Adding 2013’s sum to the overall grand total, Jimmy V Week has generated an impressive $8,246,000 for the organization since launching the campaign in 2006.

    “For 20 years, Jim’s message has rallied us to help find a cure for this terrible disease,” John Skipper, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks Group, and president, ESPN, says. “These extraordinary results again demonstrate that together with The V Foundation, our efforts can make a meaningful difference in this fight.”

    At some point you have to realise that
    some people can stay in your heart
    but not in your life.......



    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
