Hello, and welcome to my family's fundraising page! My name is Ralph Sampson. We are proud to raise money and awareness for early cancer detection and screenings at UVA Cancer Center. This page is in honor of my father, Ralph Sampson, Sr.
Cancer can be hard to detect, and if symptoms aren't present, it can remain undiagnosed. Early diagnosis of cancer is critical because more treatment options are often available—giving patients and their families more time and hope for a brighter future.
Whatever you can give will help—it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and encourage you to check back on our progress. Thank you!
ABOUT RALPH SAMPSON
"IF IT IS TRUE, as Ralph Sampson says, that 'you can't hide seven feet tall,'
then it is easy to understand why a three-time college basketball player of the year,
four-time NBA All-Star and someone who is actually 7'4" has never disappeared
despite playing his last professional game more than 20 years ago."
Perhaps the most heavily recruited college basketball prospect in history, University of Virginia legend Ralph Sampson is focusing his time and efforts on raising funds for cancer research at UVA Cancer Center, in honor of his father who has battled lung and prostate cancer.
