Stuart Scott Fighting Cancer Yet Again

“There are 28 million cancer survivors worldwide,” ESPN's Stuart Scott said in a statement. “You know what that means?..we’ve got a strong army!! Once again, I join the fight and like 3 years ago, I plan to beat this thing. Can’t tell you how much I appreciate everyone’s well wishes and support. I’ll be back at work soon…probably sooner than you think. I am blessed to have the invaluable support of a great team of loving family, genuine friends, and my ESPN family.”

Scott will undergo chemo for a 2nd time in his life after docs found undefined cancerous tissue. Scott underwent chemo in 2007 when doctors discovered tumors around his appendix.

Our best to Stuart. Kick arse.

For those of you who wonder what happened to SS' eye:

I had gotten in shape and (Jets coach) Herman Edwards gave me permission to go to minicamp with them. I was doing a feature for ESPN on what it’s like to be in minicamp. But I was serious about it.

At end of practice all the wideouts went to the Jugs Machine, it’s a machine that shoots balls out. I had never done that before. I had been catching everything that day in practice from the quarterbacks. I was probably a little close and the thing was fast and the thing was faster than I thought it was.

You can imagine what happened next.
