ESPN's Stuart Scott Fighting Cancer Since 2007: Longtime ESPN SportsCenter anchor Stuart Scott, 48, has been fighting cancer since 2007, as detailed in today's New York Times. He has undergone 58 infusions of chemotherapy and two recurrences of cancer, using MMA and cross-training workouts to keep his energy up. "I never ask what stage Iím in," Scott said. "I haven't wanted to know. It won't change anything to me. All I know is that it would cause more worry and a higher degree of freakout. Stage 1, 2 or 8, it doesn't matter. I'm trying to fight it the best I can."
