Last Thursday long time Turner-Sports reporter Craig Sager passed away after a very public battle with Leukemia, he was 65 years old. Despite a terminial diagnosis after his cancer returned in early 2016 Craig didn't stop fighting, and certaintly didn't stop living. I think about death every single day, it's absolutely terrifying, I don't think I could be able to handle it the way Craig did. It's tough to see someone go through all of that, and so publicly.
In the final week of his life Craig still kept living. He went to his 10 year old son's basketball game on Saturday and 11 year old daughter's on Sunday. When you watch the video you can see how sickly he looks and the pain he's in, but he wasn't going to let that stop him from not wasting the final days he had left. The day before Sager's death was his wedding anniversary, it makes you think he just held on long enough to have that day with his wife.
Very powerful video about life and living when you know that you time is nearly up.
