Stuart Scott's Cancer Back - But He Tweets He's Fighting Hard

ESPN anchor Stuart Scott tweeted that his cancer has returned, but that he's fighting hard.

How hard? He went from tweeting Monday night about his health to hosting SportsCenter, as if nothing were wrong. As he hosted, he was inundated with supportive tweets.

"Blessed by prayers... I'm back in the Fight," Scott wrote. "C reared its head again. Chemo evry 2 wks but I'll still work, still work out..still #LIVESTRONG"

In another tweet, he said that after chemotherapy treatments he goes straight to work out, doing either P90X or mixed martial arts.

Scott was treated for cancer in 2007 after doctors found malignant tissue following an emergency appendectomy. He returned to work at ESPN a month later.

In January 2011, Scott began undergoing chemotherapy after more cancerous tissue was removed. He again returned after a month. 

Scott has become a symbol of hope for many who have loved ones fighting the disease or who are fighting it themselves. He traded tweets with some of them after his latest announcement.

He also tweeted Tuesday: "Don't like using profanity on Twitter but some of my fav well wishes R the good folks who say #F@$KCancer... I can't spell it out but I AGREE."
