At this year’s ESPY awards, the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance went to Jarrius Robertson, the 14-year-old NBA fan who is battling chronic liver disease.

Jarrius gave a hilarious and uplifting speech as he accepted the award. Click on the audio player to hear more in this exclusive clip from the “Ed Lover Show.”
