Stuart Scott, longtime SportsCenter anchor, died yesterday morning at the age of 49. He had been fighting cancer since 2007. Scott never let the cancer defeat him and he certainly didn’t let it define him.
His colleague Hannah Storm was given the tough task of announcing his death. It was very heartbreaking, but she somehow managed to keep it together.
ESPN posted a lovely tribute for Scott. You can watch it here.
I’ll leave you with a quote from Scott:
“You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and the manner in which you live.”
