Hannah Storm Gives Heartfelt, Tearful Sendoff to ESPN's Stuart Scott

By    |   Monday, 05 Jan 2015 12:40 PM

Hannah Storm fought back tears Sunday as she delivered the news that her fellow ESPN broadcaster Stuart Scott had died after a seven-year battle with cancer earlier that morning.

Storm held up for a under a minute as she reminded the viewers of what Scott said when he accepted the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at the ESPY Awards over the summer.

"When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer," Storm said, quoting Scott, "You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live."

Storm finished by saying, "Today, we choose not say that Stuart lost to cancer at the age of 49. Instead we'll simply say that we all lost Stuart."

Scott was first diagnosed with stomach cancer back in November 2007. The sports anchor underwent years of surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, and clinical trials while continuing to work for the sports network, according to CNN.

The NFL held moments of silence for Scott before Sunday's wild card games, and the NBA did the same at several basketball games, ESPN noted.

Storm's tribute to Scott struck a note with many on social media.









Storm then took to Twitter herself later to thank viewers for their messages and support.
