  • to those 97 heartless beings that disliked this amazing piece, he was diagnosed with cancer , and still managed to give that amazing speech and created a cancer research foundation that could end up saving millions of people. I hope you realize he died from this dreaded disease…. R.I.P. Jimmy V. you are missed
