Stuart Scott

Stuart Scott gives fellow cancer patients reasons to fight.

Scott received the Jimmy V Award at the ESPY’s last night. He gave an acceptance speech that encouraged others to fight. Along with that, he personally thanked all of whom have helped him fight.

He mentioned that he has presented this very award before and remembers a specific quote from the late Coach Valvano. “Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.”

“I have a responsibility to never give up,” states Scott. He then goes on to say that when he can’t fight, others will fight for him. Doctors, nurses and his family let him cry, while they give him constant loving support. In return he fights so he can be there for his family.

Scott expressed with passion how one doesn’t lose to cancer.”You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live.”

At the conclusion of his speech, getting emotional himself, he invited his tearful daughter to join him on stage to share a hug. At this point the emotional audience stood and applauded.

    Think of that first line as a broadcast lead. A better print lead is in the second graf: ESPN’s Stuart Scott encouraged others to fight as he received the Jimmy V Award at the ESPY’s last night. It gives the news, the context and a bit of a summary.

    Organization is OK, but somewhere in the story you need info on his cancer and how he is responding.
