​ESPN Anchor Stuart Scott Has Died After A Long Battle With Cancer

This is heartbreaking.

ESPN anchor Stuart Scott inspired millions of people over his two-decade long battle with cancer. Sadly, he died on Sunday morning at the age of 49.

Scott, who was one of the network's most loved anchors, received the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance in July at the 2014 ESPY Awards, and he made it clear that he will not lose to cancer. He explained:

"When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live."

With those words in mind, Scott absolutely beat cancer by living a very full life!

ESPN's president John Skipper released a statement, saying:

"ESPN and everyone in the sports world have lost a true friend and a uniquely inspirational figure in Stuart Scott. Who engages in mixed martial arts training in the midst of chemotherapy treatments? Who leaves a hospital procedure to return to the set? His energetic and unwavering devotion to his family and to his work while fighting the battle of his life left us in awe, and he leaves a void that can never be replaced."

Our thoughts are with his friends, family, and anyone else who loved Scott on this sad day.

    Thank you for posting this. Stuart Scott was injured when hit in the face by a football during a New York Jets mini-camp on April 3, 2002, while filming a special for ESPN. This damaged his eye, disfiguring it somewhat. After the accident, though, he sported ultra-geometric shaped frames, nearly masking the injury. This made him one of the most fashion forward anchors on the network. And for those wondering why post this on perezhilton.com? In the realm of journalism, Scott was known as just a great guy, nothing but love and admiration from his peers. He was that guy that everyone genuinely, personally liked. Sad day for us, but Heaven is rallying around their very deserving new admission into the blissful celebration that is Heaven. We will miss you, friend.
