I have been lucky enough to not have to deal with cancer first hand in my life, but millions of people aren't so lucky. Some of these people include children who are out there right now fighting this disease when they should be playing with their friends. We sit here and whine every so often about bad beats or downswings. In the grand scheme of things, they mean nothing. The next time you have a bad day at the tables, just think about how lucky we all are to even be playing this wonderful game.
Below is Jimmy V's speech from the ESPY Awards in 1993. Please watch it. Please share it with others.
