Wife's breast Cancer Surgery
I know many of you have been praying for Mossy Oak prostaff member Kami McGann (my wife) with her battle with Breast Cancer. Thought I would update. She is done with chemo. The tumor did shrink (good news), surgery is now scheduled for Jan. 24th. Not out of the woods just yet and can't wait to get back into the woods after a year off from bowhunting. Your continued prayers are appreciated. After surgery will be 3 weeks of radiation for 15 minutes every day. She did kick off the new year with a New Years morning Goose hunt with me. I loved every second in that pit with her. (pictured) All of your prayers have been greatly appreciated!
Happy to hear it! Hope the surgery goes well.
Good news for the new year Scott! We'll continue sending our prayers for Kami, yourself and the rest of your family through these challenges. God bless!
Encouraging news, Mt.man! Continued prayers for your wife as well as your entire family!
Prayers for continued recovery and for it to never return.
Radiation was a piece of cake in contrast to chemo for my wife.
Glad to hear it! Hoping for more good news to be posted.
Beast of luck to you and your wife Sir !
Prayers sent from MN. Cancer REALLY sucks!
Best to you both and god bless. I know this disease all too well.
good news so far... keep at it...
Keep the faith and prayers your way for success.
Great news!! Take it one day at a time and keep the positive and prayful vibes going!!
God is driving. All she needs to do is have faith in his will and hold on. The rest of the family too. Cancer is as hard on the family as it is on the person fighting it.
Keep the faith. Keep the course. And, Remember to glorify God for the healing to come.
Scott, great news! Keep the fire burning, you both will pull through! God Bless!
Prayers for Kami...hang in there!

I will pray for your wife. My best friend had a lung removed three years ago from stage IV lung cancer. My daughter in law has stage IV breast cancer and also cancer in her liver. She is having chemo three weeks in a row and then skips a week. Hopefully there will be a cure in the near future.
God bless you all with healing and excellent health to last many more decades. Praying in CNY from another C survivor. TK

Prayers sent from the Walker family Lewis
Prayers sent. Great news that she's responding well to treatment. Keep us updated.
Surgery went super smooth. The Surgeon said when she got in there that 5 lymph nodes where all clustered together so she didn't have to do any extra cutting. Now we wait a few days for the pathology results. Thanks all!
Glad to hear the procedure itself went well, Scott! Prayers sent on the pathology, but regardless of that, prayers sent for a good outcome.
Good news thoughts and prayers sent Lewis
Blessings for sure. Prayers will continue
Prayers Sent Scott. Hang in there !!
Prayers from NC. I love the sheer joy in her face in that picture.
Glad to hear it, all the best!!
Glad it went well. I hope it goes better!
Cancer does suck. I hope they got it all and she lives a long happy life!!
Positive vibes to you both. Glad it went well. Best to you both.
So glad for you all, .we just have to keep praying, God bless u-all. Prayers from MO.
Well here we go again. The pathology results came back and the Tumor was alive and full of Cancer cells. 7 months of chemo did nothing to it. The good news is the Tumor is out of her body. The bad news is there is a real possibility the cancer has spread to other parts of her body as 1 of the 5 lymph nodes removed also showed Cancer cells. We are basically starting all over with a new type of Oral chemo and many scans to see if they see any cancer anywhere else. Pretty frustrating news to say the least. We know our GOD is bigger than Cancer and we will praise and trust him even on the dark days.
Thanks for your prayers, we are going to need all of them!

Sorry for the set back. Praying they got all the cancer and can put this behind y’all after treatment.
So sorry Scott. I’ve been watching this thread and have sent prayers your way. My wife is a 3 time “C” survivor, the first being breast 15 yrs ago. It sucks what you guys are going through, believe me I know and we feel for you, your family and of course your wife. One thing I know, the treatments are getting better and more successful. Hopefully that will be some encouragement for you guys to fight forward and kick its butt. We are pulling for her.
Saying a prayer for healing for your wife, and the difficult times you are faced with.
I pray guidance for the healers as well.
Keep the faith. Continued prayers
Sorry to hear the follow-up news. Praying for strength for your wife and for your family. Hopefully, the right chemo can address the issue. Keep the faith.

She is no doubt in good hands.

Prayers going up for Kami and Scott. Blessings from above!!!
We will keep her and u in prayer. Blessings
Again I just want to say THANK YOU for all of your prayers for my wife. In May & June she went through a strong regiment of radiation. She was a warrior fighting thru the burns and such. All while still taking Oral Chemo at the same time. My wife is simply amazing as she has not had a single week of work with less than 40 hours worked since this whole battle started over a year ago.
A little note, my wife is a Medical Scientist and in fact she is the Lab manager for our local hospital. This whole Covid-19 crap has had her doing zoom meetings everyday on our way to radiation and back. 90 mile round trip every morning in May & June. Not to mention homeschooling then working until 8-9pm daily.
Now that Radiation is done they gave her 3 weeks off to recover. This past week she started back on her chemo for 2 more months. We have scans scheduled for Aug. 25th and we are praying for an "ALL CLEAR". Kami is super excited as she and I drew an amazing zone for controlled Archery Elk starting Aug. 30th. It's a chance to harvest a real dandy bull and I have not seen her so excited in a long time. We need to get this cancer behind us and have an amazing Elk hunt.
Thanks again for all of your prayers. Charlie, thank you for thinking of my wife with your kids P.M.'S!!!
Scott "Scooter" McGann www.scootersyouthhunting.camp
Prayers coming your way. I hope that elk hunt is terrific. C
Awesome news. Sounds like a tough woman that is getting some help from the Good Lord. That chemo is some rough stuff. But, she seems to be doing great. Continued prayers heading to her. It’s going to be just fine. Take care and God Bless
Continued prayers for you guys Scott! Great to hear good news for a change! Keep up the good fight Kami, those elk are in trouble!
Kami sounds amazing...no doubt, she will be successful this Season!
Sounds like an amazing woman. Looking forward to some elk photos. Good luck!

As a medical laboratory scientist and retired lab director I have a great deal of respect for your wife and her ability to work through this ordeal. Hoping for a great outcome for you both
Thanks for the update, Scott. Continued prayers for Kami, as well as the rest of your family. Looking forward to the recap and photos from the upcoming elk hunt. Hopefully, Kami’s bull is just a little bigger than yours! ;-)
Scott, this is the best news I've heard in a while! I'm very happy for her, for you, and for your family. I'll keep the prayers coming and I have the same wish as t-roy above- two nice bulls, with hers definitely bigger than yours!
Hope things continue to go a good way for you all!
continuing prayers for your wife

Prayers sent for you and Kami from Texas.
God bless. Keep the faith. Kami is definitely a fighter!
Did she have a BRCA test done? Next month will mark ten years since my lil sis passed away at age 49. She tested positive but thankfully all three of her daughters were negative with 50% odds. Was extremely aggressive she didn’t have a chance. Wishing the best for your wife.
I thank her for her service during these trying times especially under those circumstances. My wife is about 13 years cancer free after her mastectomy. Hope good results for your wife also and good hunting to both of you..........Bob
Thanks for keeping us posted. I sure hope for the best! A great elk hunt would be good.
Thats quite the trooper you got there. Good luck on your hunt and God Bless...
As Always... Please know that there is so much love and prayer for your whole family brother!!!
This is outstanding news....thank God!!
Still praying for you! Thanks for the update
That's Great to read!
Keep the Faith,
praying for Kami... tough road to tow, stay strong.
Great news! Glad to hear it and continued prayers.
Yesterday Kami went in for her scans on her breast cancer. Our hopes were to get an all clear report, however God has a new path for our little family and we will trust him. The scan results are 2 new spots on her Lungs as well as a spot on her bones. We have more intense scans again scheduled for tomorrow, but for now it is looking like her cancer is spreading. Our little family could use some prayers.
Prayers and good vibes from Wisconsin. Stay strong, and please let us know how we can help.
Sending our best to Kami and your family. Stay strong and fight this together
Sorry to hear about this...My prayers for your Family, Scott.

As I lay here next to my sleeping bride, best friend, favorite hunting partner, Isaiah 40, 29-31 comes to mind.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary,and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Update: Well both Kami and I had shot opportunities on nice 6x6 bulls, but we both caught tree limbs (those hidden ones) and came home empty handed! We love life and love our LORD and know he will take care of us. With that out of the way here is the update.
1. From the 1st day of elk hunting I knew something was wrong. Went to the ortho and both my knees are bone on bone with micro-fracturing occurring in the joint. Dr. could not believe I was elk hunting. WELL? new left knee scheduled for Oct. 7th, and right knee scheduled for Dec. 16th.
2. Kami update. Went in for CT scan on Aug. 25th. Found spots on her lungs, Lung biopsy shows cancer has spread to her lungs. Oncologist has done all options for my bride. Told her she has 5-10 years as it stands right now. Referred my wife to MD Anderson Research Hospital in Houston, Tx. They have told us my wife does not have the genetic marker for a clinical trial that is showing hope for her type of cancer. They are using words like EXTEND or PROLONG her days with us. Those are hard words to swallow as a husband. Right now there is no cure for her triple negative cancer. We trust the LORD with all of it. Cancer research is advancing daily and if we can get 5-10 years with Kami then we have 2 prayers. 1. The rapture happens and we all get new bodies in Heaven. 2. Research finds a cure for her.
Thanks for all your support and prayers the last couple years. I am now getting ready for knee replacement #1 then my bride flies out 4 days later to Houston to talk with the Dr.'s down there. I will be hobbling around with 2 young boys to care for while she is down there for a week. FUN FUN FUN!
Again, Thank you Bowsite and shoot straight!
More prayers sent. Not the update I hoped for. Obviously not the report you hoped to give. Sounds like you both have good attitudes- that will help a ton. Stay tough, keep praying, and enjoy every day you possibly can.
Good to hear you both got out hunting and enjoyed your self. Prayers sent for these other set backs.
You both have great faith and courage keep fighting! Prayers send.
In the words of Jim Valvano “Don’t give up don’t ever give up”Hopes and prayers from our family to yours.Good luck to both of you Lewis
Scott: Both is you are strong. Thx for the update.
PS: Glad you took those special tags to the field.
Keep the faith. God can make cancer disappear with nothing more then his will.
I’ve read the Bible a lot. There is still parts of it that I can’t understand well. However, what I did understand is the reality that God will grant us our prayers if it’s in his will to do so. And, that we must never forget to glorify him for doing so.
Your wife and whole family has been praying on this. Many of us here have done so as well. Never stop. Never give up. And give God the glory.
Love and prayers from Mississippi!!! May God be glorified through your trials!!!
Not the news anyone wanted to hear Scott, we'll keep praying for Kami, yourself, and the rest of the family. Speedy recovery for you on the knee replacements, you'll be thankful you did it after you recover!
From my family to yours, you are both in our thoughts and prayers.
More prayers from MN sent to you and your family Scott!
I pray that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will give both of you His peace.
I love your outlook and approach to this trying period. WRT to your Prayer #2......new medical advances and techniques seem to happen daily/weekly. I've mentioned this before and will touch on it again. Since I went thru my successful treatments, newer and better chemo cocktails have come out. Take it a day at a time and keep the faith!
Praying for healing and peace for you and your wife and family.
Praying for you guys. never give up hope. Co workers wife was in the same situation and after chemo and radiation she is now in remission. Sound like you both hve a greater attitude and positive outlook on life. Again continued prayers! Never doubt that power
Still sending prayers! You both hang tough!
Man Brother, I have no words other than the Faith and words of Christ!
Scott and Kami,
Be Faithful, Be Strong, Fear Nothing! By His Grace are we saved and delivered!!! He can heal all things if that's His will! I pray for His deliverance, healing and peace for you both!!
As said above, NEVER GIVE UP, Never quit fighting! Live by faith, not words!!!
I believe you are in ALL our prayers, and in prayer is strength!!!
