No one wants to see a loved one go through the suffering of cancer or any long-term illness. It begins to take a toll on everyone. But because of Scott's candor and wisdom, he provided my dad and I with a personal playbook of how to best handle cancer, both for the long suffering patient and for the person who loves them.
Sydni and Taelor Scott release an emotional video tribute honoring the ESPN legend.
As the ESPYs approach, we remember longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott whom lost his private battle with cancer. A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Scott got his start at a few stations in the south, making stops in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.
What we can learn from Stuart Scott is to live a fearless life, a life full of passion, a life full of adventure, a life that's rewarding to you on all levels. I want all of you to tap into that inner Stuart Scott.
While this battlefield metaphor is one that may work well in sports, where there is almost always a winner and a loser at the end of the contest, it falls short when applied to an illness like cancer. Cancer has no rules, no time outs, no substitutions, no game clock.
