"When you die, it 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." (Stuart Scott)
The fearless, intimate, and inspiring story behind ESPN anchor Stuart Scott's unrelenting fight against cancer.
Shortly before he passed away, on January 4, 2015, Stuart Scott completed work on this memoir. It was both a labor of love and a love letter to life itself. Not only did Stuart relate his personal story - his childhood in North Carolina, his supportive family, his athletic escapades, his on-the-job training as a fledgling sportscaster, his being hired and eventual triumphs at ESPN - but he shared his intimate struggles to keep his story going. Struck by appendiceal cancer in 2007, Stuart battled this rare disease with an unimaginable tenacity and vigor. Countless surgeries, enervating chemotherapies, endless shuttling from home to hospital to office and back - Stuart continued defying fate, pushing himself through exercises and workout routines that kept him strong. He wanted to be there for his teenage daughters, Sydni and Taelor, not simply as their dad but as an immutable example of determination and courage.
Every Day I Fight is a saga of love, an inspiration to us all.

I loved the fact Stuart Scott was very honest with his struggles with cancer.
My favorite "scene" when Stuart Scott told the real story behind his speech at the ESPYs.
Show up for Life!
Having been a long time admirer of Stuart Scott, I was crushed to hear of his passing. As soon as the book was available, I ordered and read it in 2 days. Very touching, uplifting and inspirational all at once. Have great insight into how great a human being he really was. He reminds us of what is really important in life. Read this today - you will not be disappointed.
