The Payton Wright Foundation is grateful for the generous support and collaboration of the following organizations and individuals. Their generosity helps us to care for many families who are fighting pediatric brain cancer. 

Dick Vitale  &  V Foundation for Cancer Research on YouTube

vitale dick mESPN basketball analyst Dick Vitale first met Payton shortly after she was diagnosed in 2006, and he began spreading awareness of her fight. He spoke of Payton often during broadcasts and, through his affiliation with the V Foundation for Cancer Research, vowed to raise a million dollars in her name for pediatric cancer research. To date, he has helped raise more than $1.3 million dollars in Payton's name.

He spent the next several hours reading months of Holly Wright’s blog updates that chronicled their family’s journey. When he finished, he wrote to the Wrights, promising to spread awareness about Payton and pediatric brain cancer. Now with two hit singles and an Academy of Country Music Award nomination for Song of the Year, David performed two benefit concerts to raise funds for The Payton Wright Foundation, and he continues to provide ongoing support.
