Stuart Scott

Stuart Scott was an anchor and sportscaster for ESPN. He was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, and was part of the on-air talent at the student-run radio station WXYC. He graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1987 with a Bachelor of Arts in speech communication. He lived with his two daughters in Connecticut. He married Kimberley Scott in 1993. He had been fighting cancer since 2007. His doctors managed to successfully remove all of the cancerous tissue but, sadly, Stuart had a relapse in early 2013.

Battle with Cancer

The first signs of trouble began during a Pittsburgh Steelers–Miami Dolphins Monday Night Football game on November 26, 2007, which Scott was covering for ESPN, where he became ill during the game. This resulted in an emergency appendectomy a few hours later, during which a malignant growth was discovered and extra surgery required removing the possibly cancerous tissue.

Despite this Scott was back at work within a month, and continued to broadcast even during his chemotherapy treatment that followed, garnering much praise from fellow broadcasters and the ESPN President George Bodenheimer in particular.

Remission lasted several years; however in 2011 Scott revealed that he again had to fight off cancer, which thankfully went into remission again in 2012. This time Remission was not such a long period, and in 2013 Scott announced that once again, his cancer had returned.
