Former White House Press Secretary Tony Snow has died after a long battle with cancer.

Snow died of complications from cancer Saturday morning at the age of 53.

He was originally diagnosed with colon cancer in 2005, only to have it return last year.

In 2006, Snow replaced Scott McClellan as press secretary for President Bush.

When Snow resigned as press secretary last September, he said it was for financial reasons, not health reasons.
