Welcome to SportsNation! On Wednesday, ESPN NFL analyst, and cancer surviver, Merril Hoge stops by to talk football and celebrate Jimmy V Week here at ESPN.

In the 18 years since The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded by ESPN and Jim Valvano, the foundation has raised more than $100 million. For more information, or to donate to the V Foundation, call 1-800-4-JimmyV or go here. Every cent of every donation goes directly to cancer research.

Hoge was diagnosed with stage II non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2002 and was pronounced cancer free in 2003. He spent most of his eight-year NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before retiring as a Chicago Bear in 1994, having his career cut short by a series of concussions.

Send your questions now and join Hoge Wednesday at noon ET!
