Robert Anthony (Tony) Snow (June 1, 1955 - July 12, 2008) in Berea, Kentucky; was a television journalist and former press secretary for President George W. Bush. Snow retired from his position at the White House on September 14, 2007, citing financial reasons related to his treatment for colon cancer. Snow died on July 12, 2008 at the age of 53.
Tony wrote an article that sounded more like Catholicism than a reporters typical offering. This was posted for Christian Today magazine in July 2007, 'Cancer's Unexpected Blessings'. His statements 'You Have Been Called' and 'Learning How to Live' give a tremendous insight into dealing with cancer: "Remember that we were born not into death, but into life."
