Scott was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia, attended St Matthew's Grade School and Father Judge High School.

Soon after celebrating his 40th birthday in September, 2010 Scott was diagnosed with late stage esophageal cancer.

The family is currently dependent on credit cards and the donations of others and are finding it difficult to make ends meet. Please help offset/assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden. Any contrbution or support would be greatly appreciated.
