This isn’t the type of announcement that people wanted to hear. Stuart Scott announced on Twitter yesterday that his cancer has returned. After he tweeted his announcement, a lot of people reached out to him including Kobe Bryant, Robert Griffin III, Chris Paul & more.
According to HP:
ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys told USA Today Sports that the Sportscenter fixture “plans to continue to work the best he can around his treatments.”
As indicated in his tweets, this is not Scott’s first battle with cancer. He first faced the illness in 2007 after an emergency appendectomy revealed a malignancy that was treated with chemotherapy.
“I’m not the type of guy to let this eat up my life. I’ve got strong faith and family and friends who are tackling this with me,” Scott said during his 2008 treatment, via ESPN.com. “I can’t find the words to express how much I appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers. I probably won’t be able to get back to you all; but know it means a ton.”
Scott again underwent chemotherapy in 2011 after doctors discovered more cancerous tissue. In 2011, Scott also announced his treatment on Twitter.
