Jimmy Valvano was the head coach of North Carolina State University , and he helped his team win the NCAA Basketball Tournament with extreme odds against them! Shortly after winning, Jimmy gave this touching, enthusiastic ESPY Awards speech about how to live a fulfilling life, which is to every day, laugh, think, and cry. This speech was even more remarkable considering he was diagnosed with cancer but continued to be his well known enthusiastic self. Jimmy Valvano died of cancer 8 weeks after delivering this speech to the world. His final message was “Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul. And those three things are going to carry on forever. I thank you and God bless you all.”
