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.

Earlier this year, Scott was greeted with an enormous ovation at the North Carolina Tar Heels’ Midnight Madness to kick off the basketball season. Scott attended UNC.

“When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer,” Scott said then. “You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”

During Scott’s acceptance of the Jimmy V Perseverance Award, he said he is encouraged to battle against the disease primarily because of his two daughters.
