ESPN host and anchor, Stuart Scott, who has battled cancer three times in his life and is battling a rare form of cancer now, posted on Twitter recently that rumors that he has been placed in hospice are false.
“Rumor bout me in hospice. Not True. Airball. Swing & a miss. I continue treatment for C & missed some work but Hospice? No. Fighting? YES!” is what Scott’s tweet read.
Known for his energetic sportscasting and coining phrases such as “Cool as the other side of the pillow”, Stuart gave an emotional speech at the 2014 ESPY Awards when he accepted the Jimmy V Award.
Scott, just one year shy of the age of 50, has been battling cancer in his stomach for seven years. He had his appendix removed and endured chemotherapy and radiation, and yet the cancer continues to return.
