ESPY AWARDS 2019 HOST: Tracy Morgan is this year’s awards show host and he has taken on the gig in order to help in the fight against cancer, as he has had several family members affected by the disease. The awards show helps raise money to fight cancer so this is a great opportunity for Morgan to participate in. Recently, Morgan spoke about it to Entertainment Weekly and said, “It’s going to be an incredible night celebrating all of the great things these athletes have done, the thrill of victory, but we can’t let the most important thing from that night get away from us: fighting to end cancer. My ex-wife passed away from cancer three years ago, so when I go on that stage, that will be for my ex-wife. That will be for my kids. That will be for your family members. That will be for everyone who passed away from cancer. I’m taking a lot of people on that stage with me that night. I have to do something on this Earth before I leave here and I want to champion that cause.”
He continued, “We really have to understand why we’re here: To help people in this world who are suffering … There’s only one way out of the darkness, and you have to put yourself in service to others. We have to make good for all those with that deadly disease. We have to make it so suffering stops — we must. Maybe we can change someone’s world.”
