Two men had different paths in life, and both die of the same disease – cancer. Former Fox News commentator and White House press secretary Tony Snow and former Yankee great Bobby Mercer both died yesterday from cancer.
Snow died at the all too-young age of 53 from colon cancer. He was one of the original Fox News personalities when the cable net launched in 1996, and became President Bush’s press secretary in 2006 when his cancer went into remission. But the cancer returned and he was sidelined for the most part, aside from a handful appearances on CNN.
