Stuart Scott Has Cancer Again


ESPN’s Stuart Scott took to Twitter with some heartbreaking news on Monday night, informing his followers that his cancer has returned:

Scott was first diagnosed with cancer back in 2007 after an emergency appendectomy revealed a malignancy that was treated with chemotherapy, then received chemotherapy again in 2011 after more cancerous tissue was found.

As indicated in his revealing tweet, Scott still plans to work for ESPN while receiving chemo and the network says they plan on working around his treatments. After tweeting out the news, Scott went on to co-anchor the 11:00 P.M. SportsCenter show.

Very sad news for one of our favorite SportsCenter anchors but, just like he has in the past, he seems to be holding strong in his fight. Thoughts and prayers to you, Stu.

    Keep up the battle. I have had lung and bladder cancer at 71 and am still on the right side of the grass. You will DO IT


    of course it returned just like it did with Farah Fawcett and countless other victims of modern medicine that completely overlooks the natural healing of the past and go for the drug therapies of the drug controlled medial industry. this is all genocide for profit. Cancer is a symptom of another condition a condition of an over acid body caused by poor elimination,poor diet,and poor absorption of nutrients. The best kept secret in the world are the proven cancer cures that have been shut down and hidden because they were not drugs. Max Gerson was just one of the doctors curing cancer that were shut down, there were several others that were curing cancer and met the same fate. Modern medicine is a disgrace and a murderous drug company profit machine that kills for profit, and the government allows it.

      Errol, I do not agree with 100 percent, I agree with you 1000 percent. More people need to read the book “Cancer Step Outside the Box” amongst others and arm themselves with the information that can really beat cancer. Lord knows our modern day MD’s can’t.

    Stuart, You are in my prayers. Please read Louise Hay’s little book, HEAL YOUR BODY, especially the PREFACE. She healed herself of cancer and she’s going strong at 85. Hope it helps.
