Our prayers are with one of our favorite ESPN hosts this morning, Stuart Scott following his announcement last night on Twitter that his cancer has returned.
The 47-year-old Scott was originally diagnosed in 2007 after undergoing an emergency appendectomy. Doctors found a rare malignancy known as appendiceal cancer, according to Touched By Cancer magazine.
Scott also received chemotherapy in 2011, he announced on Twitter at the time.
The longtime anchor “plans to continue to work the best he can around his treatments,” an ESPN spokesperson told USA Today.
Scott’s announcement has been retweeted more than 3,600 times as of early Tuesday morning. He has gotten words of support from numerous professional athletes, including Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Get Well!!! Our prayers are definitely with you Stu!
Hit the flip for Scott’s encouraging tweets from Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, RG3 and more.
We especially love how Stuart Scott and RG3 address each other as brother… (*cough* Rob Parker!)
