Via Awful Announcing:

ESPN’s Stuart Scott took to Twitter with some heartbreaking news on Monday night, informing his followers that his cancer has returned:

Scott was first diagnosed with cancer back in 2007 after an emergency appendectomy revealed a malignancy that was treated with chemotherapy, then received chemotherapy again in 2011 after more cancerous tissue was found.

As indicated in his revealing tweet, Scott still plans to work for ESPN while receiving chemo and the network says they plan on working around his treatments. After tweeting out the news, Scott went on to co-anchor the 11:00 P.M. SportsCenter show.

  • As with all others, so very sad. Prayers and best wishes as you face the days ahead!
  • The high incident of cancer among TV announcers is because of the high and continual exposure to ambient EMFs. For obvious reasons many involved parties do not want to go there.
  • That's the dumbest comment that I have ever heard. Keep your head up high, Stuart.
  • Wow, that does take strength. Best wishes.
  • Kick it's butt Stuart!! You can beat this again and you will beat it again. Prayers to you!!
  • AMEN!
  • I was dignosed in 2010, surgery and 6 months of chemo.....reaccured 2012 surgery and 6 months of chemo. I had my last chemo a week ago....I'm so happy to hear your attitude. That makes the difference. Go to work and when your feeling bad....tell yourself...I can indure....and when you can't take a rest. Your poor body is doing all the fighting.
    (Picked the right guy cuz I HIT HARD all day long!!)right attitude!!!
    Good luck to you....Keep on keeping on!!!

  • Best Wished to you Stuart. I am to going thru Chemo every two weeks. You strong attitute will get you thru. All my thoughts will be with you. I too work and that is getting me thru this horrible experience. You are my favorite sports announcer
  • Hang in there steelfish46, it will be over. I had to do chemo every 3 weeks for 1 1/2 years and work full-time. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, 5 years so far, clean.
  • Hey stu, as a young man from the Chi- I know you can beat this Cancer. just remember when we had to fight our whay back and forth to school just to get an education. so if you've gotten this far, don't stop now. Chi-Town from all of us at Fort Hood TX.
  • Stuart - Because of you, I watch ESPN. To me, you are ESPN and that network wouldn't be the same without you. Stay strong my friend, you are in my prayers!
  • i wish you the best. Hopefully the C will exit for a final time. You are one classy broadcaster and always a pleasure to see you on air. Good luck with the chemo!
  • hang tough Stuart you can and Will beat it.
  • My prayers are with you.Chemo again? IT DOES NOT WORK only slows down C cells and the medical world knows this. If you want to arm yourself to fight and beat C, educate yourself away from the mainstream CUT,POISON & BAKE. Think about it treatment that makes you sick,lose hair, and kills good along with bad cells,along with damaging other vital organs is suppose to be good? You need those good cells and the rest of your body to win. a Great read is"Cancer Step Outside the Box" read the 1st 100 pages and if it does not make sense or help you throw it out. Since you have had Chemo educate yourself to REALLY build your immune system back. God Bless You
  • our families prayers are with you pal. kick butt
  • Prayers will be with you and yours Stuart. You have battled it before fight strong dont give in.

  • Our Thoughts and prayers are with you Stuart. Stay strong. Keep fighting. God bless.
  • My prayers are with you, Stu. May God continue to watch over you and heal you.
  • My prayers are with you, Stuart. You will win the battle!! So far, I'm a 5 year survivor and I know you will be too!!

  • Stuart, you're a "TarHeel." It can't beat you. All of these good people praying for you..impossible to lose. Hang in there and keep your head up.
  • Dear Stuart, I am an oncologist in Florida, but I have followed you for many years since I came to USA. There is no a single night in which I go to bed without watching ESPN at night and see what's going on. You live your work with passion, enthusiasm and you transmit that to everyone watching ESPN. Your talent is unique. My prays are with you and wish you good luck in your therapy. You are a fighter. Keep your spirit up as always. And as I told my own patients: be positive. There is always hope.

  • I am 59 years old and have been a sports fan all my life. I have listened to sports for most of 20 years when listing to my car radio. One topic people always talk about is who they like and don’t like as far as sports; players, coaches, announcers and pretty much anyone in the public eye. It is not uncommon for dislikes to lead the way in conversation!!! I can honestly say I have NEVER heard anything except how much people like and respect Stuart Scott!!!! The sports world loves you Stuart Scott and you are defiantly “cttosop” Cooler Than The Other Side Of The Pillow!!!! Be clear not as cool but cooler than the other side!
    Thank you so much for all you give us . Many many Prayers and remember Cancer is such a punk, go kick its behind!
  • Cancer is such a horrible disease that doesn't care if you are a child, adult or celebrity. It strikes down babies and old men with equal ruthlessness. It also exacts a toll on families of the stricken. I hope and pray for cure for his sake and millions of other victims of this terrible disease.
  • have enjoyed you broadcasts for years.. Battle on Stuart..
  • Too bad this guy has cancer, I sincerely hopes he can get past it. With that said, this dimwit may well be the most annoying talking head on television... with the worst style sense. Those glasses he rocks are idiotic. Someone should probably let him know.
  • God speed to you, Mr Scott. Beat this affliction. Im not a religious person, but I will pray you beat this.
  • You're a great reporter, and I hope that continues. Mine and my son's prayers are with you for a recovery. Eat lots of california avocados.....they have an incredible amount of toxin fighting elements.
