Today we won’t say Stuart Scott lost to cancer rather that we lost him. The sports world is mourning the loss of ESPN anchor, Stuart Scott. ESPN reports the sports broadcaster past this morning. After 21 years of bringing sports highlights on the network, he was honored the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at last year’s ESPYS.
“Scott was first diagnosed with cancer back in 2007. He beat it. Then it returned in 2011. He beat it again. It returned a third time in 2013, and this time it proved too much for a guy who would do P90X or MMA training just minutes after chemotherapy sessions, to keep his mental edge. But what exactly was Scott fighting?
Some outlets have reported that Scott never revealed the exact type of cancer he was fighting, which is false — but for years he was cagey about the details. When the New York Times did a profile on Scott and how he coped with the disese, he would only say that his cancer had not spread beyond where it was found, and that it was not colon cancer. He wouldn’t let a doctor speak about his condition either. Finally, in an article for Men’s Health Scott wrote that he had appendiceal cancer, a “very rare form” of the disease.
Indeed, appendiceal cancer is extremely rare, affecting 600-1,000 Americans each year, just a fraction of the millions of diagnosed cases. It’s a gastrointestinal carcinoid tumor, which are more common in African Americans than in other races, and slightly more common in women than in men. Outcomes are “not as good” for African Americans, and researchers don’t yet know why. More than 85 percent of patients with carcinoid tumors of the appendix have a five-year survival rate, yet Scott lived nearly twice as long.
Scott seemed to know that this latest battle with cancer was different. From his Men’s Health article:
IT RECENTLY CAME BACK A THIRD TIME. TO BE HONEST, I’M SCARED. I’VE ALWAYS BEEN AFRAID OF CANCER, BUT THIS TIME FEELS DIFFERENT. MY CONFIDENCE IS SHAKEN. I’M A LITTLE MORE VULNERABLE, A LITTLE MORE AWARE OF MY MORTALITY, A LITTLE MORE UNCERTAIN ABOUT MY FUTURE…
IN 20 YEARS I’D LIKE TO BE RETIRED, LIVING SOMEWHERE WARM NEAR A GOLF COURSE. BUT CANCER MAKES THAT FEEL A LITTLE LESS REALISTIC. I STILL BELIEVE IN IT, BUT NOW I’M NOT SO SURE.
SO EVERY OTHER MONDAY, I KEEP GOING TO THE GYM. I KEEP FIRING UP THE P90X. I KEEP WORKING OUT, EVEN WHEN THE CHEMO MAKES ME WANT TO JUST GIVE UP. THAT’S BECAUSE WORKING OUT IS MY WAY OF SAYING TO CANCER, “YOU’RE TRYING TO INVADE MY BODY; YOU’RE TRYING TO TAKE ME AWAY FROM MY DAUGHTERS, BUT I’M STRONGER THAN YOU. AND I’M GOING TO HIT HARDER THAN YOU. I KNOW YOU’RE GOING TO HIT BACK JUST AS HARD, AND I KNOW SOMETIMES YOU’RE GOING TO KNOCK ME DOWN. BUT I’M GOING TO GET UP, AND I’M GOING TO KICK YOUR ASS.”
AFTER A REALLY GREAT WORKOUT, SOMETIMES I EVEN BELIEVE IT.
Rest In Power.
