What's the story behind Neil Cavuto? I love his down-to-earth reports on business and finance for FOX.

FOX News Channel anchor Cavuto is the host of two shows, Your World with Neil Cavuto and Cavuto on Business. Regarded as a genuinely nice guy but also a fierce interviewer, he also is a survivor and a fighter: He recovered from Hodgkin's disease in the 1980s only to be diagnosed in 1997 with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative neurological condition for which there is no known cure. "There are days I need a cane, or I can't walk around, or my eyesight is bad," Cavuto says. "Most of it is bearable." His colleagues admire his positive attitude. "He's not a whiner," says FOX Television Chairman Roger Ailes. "He's handled it as bravely as I've seen anyone handle that kind of situation."
