Remembering Stuart Scott: “The Only Way To Be Cancer Is…”
Sports broadcaster and ESPN anchor Stuart Scott died Jan. 4, 2015 after a long fight with cancer, leaving family and friends mourning his death. Cancer came and Stuart battled it twice before losing the battle on his third time at cancer.
On the anniversary of his death, his two daughters, Taelor and Sydni, honored their late father by posting a video tribute to him.
The video was made for Dear World (a project that asks subjects to share a “meaningful message with family, friends and strangers”), and it opens with Scott’s own words.
“I can’t give up, because I can’t leave my daughters,” Stuart can be heard saying in an audio snippet from his Jimmy V Award speech at the 2014 ESPY Awards. “The best thing I’ve ever done, the best thing I will ever do, is be a dad to Taelor and Sydni. I love you guys more than I will ever be able to express. You two are my heartbeat. I am standing on this stage here tonight because of you.”
