Stuart Scott, the beloved sports newscaster died on January 4, 2015, as his battle with cancer finally came to an end. Scott was 49 when he passed. Friends, family members, fellow newscasters, celebrities, and countless athletes have been mourning the loss of dear friend.

Scott who had been fighting cancer for some time now, made a moving speech at the recent ESPY award ceremony where he was given the Jimmy P Perseverance award. It was then were he proclaimed that “When you die, that does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live,” he then went on the say, “So live. Live. Fight like hell. And when you get too tired to fight, lay down and rest and let somebody else fight for you.” It was as if he knew that his time was almost up, and that he wanted to let his friends and family know that he understands that he did the best he could to live his life while facing these troubling times.

President Obama had these touching words to say about Scout, “Over the years, he entertained us, and in the end, he inspired us — with courage and love. Michelle and I offer our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, and colleagues.” Obama was a big fan and has stated that whenever he was away from his family or on the road doing campaigns and public service appearances, he would always turn on ESPN to find Scott and his fellow correspondents.

We can all hope that the ESPN correspondent and beloved news anchor, Stuart Scott, is at rest and hopefully “sleeping on the cool side of the pillow,” as he often proclaimed. Below is the moving speech Scott made at the Espy Award Show, five months ago.
