ESPN anchor Stuart Scott has been a true mainstay with the sports network since its launch in 1993. During he’s two decade tenure, Scott continues to be one of the most popular and consistent “Sportscenter” personalities.
In 2011, Scott endured his first battle with cancer. Despite going into remission in 2012, he was again diagnosed in January 2014. Last night, Scott was honored with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award, for not only his contributions to sports, but for his bravery in the face of disease. His recollections of his fight, which most recently had him hospital ridden last week, were nothing short of inspiring.
“When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer,” Scott told the audience. “You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”
