  • ESPN's Stuart Scott has cancer.

    ESPN anchor Stuart Scott is returning to work less than a month after an emergency appendectomy discovered a malignancy that will result in Scott undergoing chemotherapy this winter.

    Following his appendectomy in late November, Scott had a second precautionary surgery to remove the tissue surrounding his appendix. Doctors treating Scott are confident any cancerous tissue was removed, but recommended preventative chemotherapy.

    Scott was in Pittsburgh for a Nov. 26 game between the Steelers and Miami when he became ill.

    "Talk about a shocker," Scott said. "But I feel good, am in great hands medically and the doctors are confident they got all the bad stuff. I'm not the type of guy to let this eat up my life. I've got strong faith and family and friends who are tackling this with me. I can't find the words to express how much I appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers. I probably won't be able to get back to you all; but know it means a ton."

    Scott will host Friday night's ESPN NBA coverage, and lead the coverage of ABC's Christmas Day studio show.

    Said ESPN president George Bodenheimer: " Stuart is approaching this fight with the same passion and energy we see on air. We're all encouraged that he is feeling so strong. He knows he has our full support and we look forward to the day when this is all behind him."

    i wish him well

    The Man...

    Stewart Scott is by far the coolest sports commentator out there, He is funny as hell and keeps his opinions to a minimum instead of shoving his thoughts down your throat ( see Steven A. Smith) He brings some humor to the sports world with his "see what had happened was", and "Aww you done made your kin folks so proud: Pookie, Ray Ray and them Lequisha, Booyah etc etc.
    I love watching Stewart Scott and hope that everything turns out well for him.

    I remember the night after Darrent Williams was murdered, Stewart Scott was sitting in his chair, With real sadness in his voice and face he said,
    "So when you hit your knees tonight to pray toss One up for the Williams family and the Broncos organization,, For the sports world in general. I know I will.."

    That's Stewart Scott in a nutshell. He loves his job and all things sports. It shows in his demeanor and fervor for the games.
    Good Luck, Stewart Scott and we wait for the "Booyah's" to return to E.S.P.N.

    When I hit my knees tonight I will toss one up for you and your family, E.S.P.N and the Entire Sports world for that Matter, and I hope that you will too.

    God Speed your recovery and return the world that you love.
