My mother died from cancer, as did my friend, Mike Connell. Thankfully, I know many others who have gone through treatment and are doing well.
One of our closest friends is in remission. While she went through chemotherapy, I ran into her husband at the grocery store. “Fighting cancer is a marathon,” he said. “It is a long journey, not a sprint.”
I’m reminded of those words as I see this video of Stuart Scott, the ESPN sportscaster, who is undergoing treatment and yesterday received an award at the ESPYs. Link is up top.
He talks about what it takes to battle cancer. It is very moving and very much worth watching.
Hang in there, Stuart, and my thoughts and prayers for you!
