Former Buffalo Bill Quarterback Jim Kelly was honored with the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at this year's ESPYS. Things got emotional when he went to accept the award.

During his speech, Kelly called for everyone to try and make a difference in the lives of the people that are around them.

So I just urge everybody out there, if you have somebody out there who is suffering -- it doesn't have to be cancer -- it could be somebody not having a good day. It could be your mom or your dad. It could be your grandparents. What you say to them, the smile that you have on your face, that could be the difference in them making it to the next day. Remember that. Always, always persevere. Like Jimmy V said, never, ever give up


The fight against cancer continues for Kelly who announced he is headed back to see doctors in New York City in August for another examine because something unexpected has come up.

We all will remain #Kellytough
