Scott was first diagnosed with the disease in 2007 when doctors discovered he had cancer of the appendix while performing an appendectomy. He underwent chemotherapy and all was well until 2011, when he revealed that doctors found tumors in his small intestine.
After an operation and more chemo, he remained cancer-free until his 1/14/13 announcement. But his award speech speaks to the brave father of two fighting until he can’t fight anymore (see below).
