Stuart Scott was an analyst at ESPN for many years until he died of cancer in 2015. Before he passed, he offered this statement at an awards show: “Life consists of two dates with a dash in between. Make the dash count.” What a powerful statement from Mr. Scott.

None of us know when life is over. To me, there’s never a time to throw in the towel and give up. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been given a dire diagnosis. This is your moment to fight back and live each day with a purpose.
