"Originally from Port Huron, MI, Scott excelled on the ice. As a student at the University of Michigan, he lead the Wolverines to the 1998 NCAA national championship. Scott went on to have a highly successful 11-year professional career in North American and European leagues.
As a professional athlete, Scott paid close attention to his body and the signals it sent him. Beginning in the summer of 2014, he began to notice stiffening in his fingers, cramping and eventually muscle twitches and tremors. After endless consultations and tests, Scott was diagnosed with ALS, a rapidly progressive and invariably fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve responsible for controlling voluntary muscles. The cause of ALS is currently unknown and there is no cure.
Despite his diagnosis, Scott remains energized and believes that it is his turn to speak out and stand out. His compelling story continues to raise awareness and support for families battling against ALS."
