ESPN anchor Stuart Scott has announced that his cancer has returned.
In a sad announcement on Monday evening, Scott wrote on Twitter:
“Blessed by prayers..I’m back in the Fight. C reared its head again. Chemo evry 2 wks yet I’ll still work, still work out..still #LIVESTRONG“
“Thanks for prayers..ill fight w ALL C survivors & loved ones. Cancer wants to re-appear..picked the right man cuz I HIT HARD all day long!!”
Scott first took ill in 2007 while at a Monday Night Football game.
An emergency appendectomy revealed the presence of appendiceal cancer. After six months of chemo, Scott was cancer-free until early 2011.
At that time, doctors discovered that malignant tumors had developed on his small intestine. More surgery & chemotherapy treated the cancer.
Apparently it has returned again.
“Cancer sucks, & the effects of chemotherapy suck, & you feel like crap sometimes. I love my job. Those of us who do what we do, we’re blessed.”
“Being on when you don’t feel well is not the challenge. I love writing. I love creating our shows every night. & by the time it’s time to go on, you’re charged.”
“And when you’re going through something like this, going to work helps. Having that energy helps. Having a positive mindset helps.”
“Sometimes you’re going to feel terrible whether you’re lying in bed or going to work or working out, so you might as well go out there & live your life.”
“If you believe you’re not being touched by this, then it’s much better.”
What does he do specifically after treatment?
“Here’s what I do right aftr chemo. Leave the infusion center & go STRAIGHT 2 either do a p90x wkout or train MMA..THATS how you #LIVESTRONG”
Boo yah. Be well Stuart.
