This weekend, longtime beloved ESPN anchor Stuart Scott lost his third bout with cancer, leaving behind two beautiful daughters and countless friends, family members, colleagues and fans across the country. He faced cancer with bravery and inspired many who also face the disease.
So today we choose to honor him by sharing what we think is his most touching quote about cancer and life: “When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and the manner in which you live.”
Stuart Scott was 49, and his journey through cancer treatment was detailed in The New York Times. “Over the years, he entertained us, and in the end, he inspired us — with courage and love. Michelle and I offer our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, and colleagues,” said President Obama.
