and#147;When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer.and#160; You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live.and#8221; and#150; Stuart Scott

The fearless, intimate, and inspiring story behind ESPN anchor Stuart Scottand#8217;s unrelenting fight against cancer.

Stuart Scott has always been intensely competitive. A varsity athlete in college and an avid sportsman ever since, Scott has had his fair share of tough opponentsand#151;but not a single one as formidable as cancer. In Every Day I Fight,and#160;Scott channels his trademark energy and irreverence seen onand#160;SportsCenterand#160;into tackling his disease, and approaches his seven years of treatment and healing with a jockand#8217;s mentality.

Scott believes thatand#151;like any athletic matchupand#151;cancer will beat you up physically, but in the end, the most daunting challenge is mental. He carries that belief into his strategy sessions with his doctors, chemo treatments, and the operating room, and refuses to slow down or quit working. With the motto and#147;Every day I fight,and#8221; Scott looks to his two teenage daughters for motivation: Every day of life he wrestles from his disease is another day he can spend with them.

From Stuartand#160;Scottand#8217;s happy childhood in North Carolina through his time at UNC, this memoir explores how he became sports broadcastingand#8217;s first Young Black Man and how his brash, provocative, and controversial styleand#151;epitomized by his catchphrase and#147;Boo-yah!and#8221;and#151;made him a fan favorite. Including anecdotes from his close relationships with athletes, from Michael Jordan to Lance Armstrong, Scott brings a gladiatorand#8217;s mindset to the ultimate fight for survivaland#151;a stubborn, take-no-prisoners mind-set that might just be the key to winning.
