Stuart Scott – Not Letting Cancer Win

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

Last night, someone sent me a news link to a story on the AOL Huffington Post that reports ESPN anchor Stuart Scott is going through chemotherapy to fight an undisclosed cancer. And one of the ways he fights back is through working out immediately after getting his three hour treatment.

Oh, and he has this great mental outlook that he's going to beat the disease. Or as he put it in one of his Tweets – he's owning the cancer instead of it owning him.

Right on. 

This weekend I was asked about my demeanor during my cancer battle, basically about my outlook. They were kind of surprised when I said, every so pastorally, that I was going to kick cancer's ass.

OK, not very "pastoral" in terms of word usage, but it is how I feel.

Time for me to get back to work. 

Prayers go out to Stuart as he fights back once again.
