With heavy hearts, ESPN announced early this morning that longtime anchor, Stuart Scott, died at the age of 49 after a long battle with cancer. Many are grieving amongst the nation as Scott has been a fixture in sport's fans homes for the past twenty years. However, Scott never let his cancer bring him down. At the 2014 ESPYS, he received the Jimmy V Perseverance Award, for his inspiration, energy, and honorable way of living.

Cancer sucks. I lost my grandmother to cancer. It's not easy, it's never easy, and it will never be easy. However, Scott's attitude for his circumstance is a lesson to all. He had every reason to be upset with his life, but chose happiness, honor, and life. 

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