Weeks after sportscaster and ESPN anchor Stuart Scott passed away at the age of 49 from cancer, Penguin Random House imprint Blue Rider Press has moved up the publication date of Scott's memoir. Every Day I Fight, originally slated for a May publication, will now go on sale March 10.
The publisher also unveiled a new cover for the title, which has a first printing of 75,000 copies. The book will include an epilogue to the original manuscript, completed by Scott and co-writer Larry Platt in late November.
David Rosenthal, president and publisher of Blue Rider Press said of the book: "Every Day I Fight embodies Stuart's truth and reflects his memorable quote from the 2014 ESPYs: ‘When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live.'”
Scott was diagnosed with appendiceal cancer in 2007 and, according to the publisher, the book documents his "unrelenting fight" against the illness. ESPN.com ran an excerpt of the book on January 21.
