The gold medalist survived testicular cancer in 1996, and then 7 years later he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, events that have forever changed his life. He explains he had surgery on the tumor, but it returned and is now being monitored. He tells The Doctors he works hard to not allow his health hurdles to stop him from living his best life possible.
"I'm living my days and I want others to do so as well," he tells Dr. Ian Smith. "We're here, we can make a difference in our culture... and community... and family if we choose to rise up in this moment and be the best we can possibly be."
To help others rise up and make a difference, Scott is launching a podcast, "Live Your Days with Scott Hamilton,"
He says of the podcast, "Each day has the promise of something if we choose to look at it that way... [the podcast] is here to touch people, inspire them, and to understand we do not choose how many days we have, you just get to choose how you are going to live them"
