From The Blaze:

Stuart Scott is an ESPN staple and SportsCenter anchor, who loves his job but says nothing even comes in as a close to second to his being a father to two daughters.

Scott also exemplifies what it means to persevere, which is why he was honored with the 2014 Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the 22nd annual Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award ceremony Wednesday night.

Scott was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in 2007 after an emergency appendectomy. He underwent chemotherapy then and was later found to have cancer again in 2011 and in 2013. He is still undergoing treatment now.
