Stuart Scott's Battle with Cancer

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

When they told me I had cancer, I was shocked. But I went straight into battle mode. Every morning I'd wake up and have an internal conversation with cancer. "All right, dude," I'd tell it, "go ahead and hit me. But I'm going to hit you back even harder." That was in 2007, and I beat it. My cancer went into remission. It came back in 2011, and I fought it and beat it again. It recently came back a third time. (Men's Health)
