Quenton Nelson Blocking Cancer


Indianapolis Colts All-Pro Offensive Lineman Quenton Nelson and the V Foundation have teamed up to launch Quenton Nelson Blocking Cancer, a year-round campaign to raise awareness and funds to underwrite game-changing cancer research and all-star scientists in pursuit of achieving Victory Over Cancer®. Throughout his life, Quenton has been inspired and motivated by the famous Jim Valvano ESPY speech that launched the V Foundation in 1993. He has applied that “Don’t Ever Give Up” attitude to his life and NFL career, and you can join him in support of his efforts to Block Cancer by donating to his fund at the V Foundation.

Thank you for supporting the Blocking Cancer campaign! I am excited to partner with the V Foundation for Cancer Research, an organization committed to declaring Victory Over Cancer®. The research the V Foundation funds is critical. By making a donation you will be supporting carefully vetted, cutting-edge research at prominent cancer centers nationwide. Will you join me in the fight against cancer by donating today?
