ESPN SportsCenter anchor Stuart Scott died Sunday after a long battle with cancer at the age of 49.
In 2007, Scott was diagnosed with appendix cancer, something he spoke candidly about when he was awarded the 2014 Jimmy V Perseverance Award.
“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," Scott said on ESPN.
