Our dad knew the fight against cancer was not a solo performance – we are still in it together.” Taelor and Sydni Scott, daughters of ESPN legend Stuart Scott, on cancer and the Black community.
There were more hospital visits leading up to the fall of 2014. Many more. And they always ended the same way, with us discussing what we would do when our dad got home. We would just pick right up where we left off. After all, we shared our day-to-day life with him in real time while he was in the hospital. It was just how our life looked in that moment. He was there, and he was certainly still our dad; he just was not staying at home. There was never a moment when we believed he would die. Our dad always believed he would beat cancer, and so did we.
