Strength in Numers (Prayers)
I am going to share the post made on Facebook from the Christian Bowhunters of America as my typing fingers are tired. TIA
Christian Bowhunters of America 7 hrs · Urgent Prayer Request: Photo of Kami McGann. Yesterday I received an email from longtime CBA member Scott McGann from Idaho. Please read the letter from Scott and PLEASE PRAY FOR his wife's (Kami). They Need our prayers. Yesterday on 5/28/19 we were given the news that Kami has been diagnosed with "Triple Negative Invasive Mammary Cell Breast Cancer". This type of Breast Cancer requires surgery as soon as they can get us scheduled with likely Radiation and Chemotherapy to follow. They are going to schedule some genetic testing as well to determine if there is anything more that is needed. As of right now they cannot tell us what "Stage" Kami is in. However, the type of tumor is graded on a 1-3 scale. 1 as least intrusive and aggressive, 3 as the most. They gave the Tumor a #3. We waited to send this email until all of our family had been informed as well as our boys. They boys absorbed what they could for their ages. Of course their fear is that their mommy is dying. Kami and I shed a lot of tears yesterday and they are starting again today. Kami has had dreams of not getting to see her boys grow up or her boys losing her as their mommy. I cannot begin to tell you all that has ran through my mind. We are just asking for prayers at this point, because we truly believe GOD will use this for good and he is BIGGER than cancer. We are giving this to him and we trust with all our hearts that he will take care of us. Are we scarred and sad, of course. That is human nature, but we are not mad or blaming anything. It's just part of his glorious plan for our little family and we LOVE GOD. Please join us in Prayer at this point. Thanks, Scott, Kami, Micah and Nathan McGann????????
So sorry to hear this. Prayers for her and your family.

Scott , I believe in the Grace of God. That said I saw God at work . my wife was diagnosed in early December. I explored all options . Settled on Stephanie Spellman Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center at James Cancer Center Ohio State University. A bit of a drive for us but I didn't mind. My wife of 31 years is my bow hunting and fishing buddy . Didn't care what we had to do to help her !!! Love her with all my heart !!! Day before yesterday was our 28th trip there . The medical, surgical and radiation oncologist all said she was now cancer free. Thank you Lord !! No appointments until September. My wife had surgery and treatments . IT CAN BE DONE . Go to the best you can find !!! Prayers are with both !!!
Few things will change your life like being told you have cancer. It gets worse waiting to hear how bad it is. Especially when you are young and have kids. I will pray for Kami and the whole McGann family vigorously because the God of Jesus Christ can fix this.
Will absolutely pray. Psalm 46:10!
Thoughts and prayers for Kami as well as the entire family from Iowa.
Life is so unfair at times....hang in there and never give up.
Oh my word Scott & Kami, I'm am totally shocked here! I don't know what to say. Stay strong, both of you! May the good Lord bless you both!
Prayers for a successful fight!

Hello Friends, Kami McGann update: Kami is sending several of her friends to "Friend" me as she just cannot deal with all the messages. She has officially referred to me as her "P.R. Guy" So I will be sharing updates on this journey. Please unless she says otherwise let her be private. Thanks! Your Prayers are WORKING, keep it up! THANK YOU! 1. Kami McGann wanted me to make sure all of you know that she appreciates all the love and prayers. She is the daughter of an amazing GOD and she is his precious DAUGHTER. She has placed this in HIS hands and knows her heavenly father is the great physician. 2. Last night we had a meeting with her surgeon and to say it was an answer to prayers for Kami McGann and I would be an understatement. Bravo to Kami as it was caught in super early stages. The surgeon gave it a "1" Yahoo!. From the reports we were given on Tues. to the meeting last night was Night and Day for Kami. She is very confident and ready to take this journey head on. With GOD all things are possible. 3. We have a plan of attack. Kami will be doing Genetic testing next week and an MRI to look at and measure the tumor. Then put in her Chemo Port. Depending on the Genetic testing results which could change our plans, but for now Chemo for the next few months. Zap that sucker dear LORD! Cancer FREE by Christmas! You better believe it! When in a fix? Phillipians 4: 6-7 OH YEAH! P.S. I can't reply to all of the messages and texts, but please know we appreciate you all. I am going to be printing all the comments for her to read during treatments. Exercise and positive thoughts/eating were very KEY elements the Surgeon Stressed to us. I LOVE YOU Kami McGann!!!!
Awesome news and continuing to pray!
Great news to hear today! We’ll be continuing to keep Kami and your family in our prayers!
I will be praying for you and Kami. You have the greatest hope anyone can have.
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
" Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even the youth grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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."
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
Kami goes in for her MRI today to measure the tumor and get a baseline started. Then her Chemo port put in on Thur. Start treatments next week. Thanks for your prayers!
More prayers on the way!
Great news! And positive attitude is KEY! SOunds like y'all are ready to fight! : )
You folks have been in my prayers! Good luck.
Prayers everyday brother!!!
We've been praying for you guys Scott, best of luck! Stay strong brother!
U got it from me and my prayer group every day.
Praying for you brother!!!! Been through the whole thing- 8 years ago I was one of the 2300 men diagnosed each year with breast cancer. 2 years after losing my 57 year old mom to pancreatic cancer. I was lucky. I know what your feeling. My kids were really young. I told them all we weren’t going to get all worked up unless we needed to. I was lucky. 8 years later I have a big scar but am no worse for wear. The medical staff at the oncology units are incredible now days. Have faith in them. Prayers to your wife.
Kami and your family are in our prayers.
We went through it with my wife’s diagnosis 5 years back and all good now.
Kami is tough and has a lot to live for. God is good and will support you all. We have faith and know that it works miracles.
Keeping your family in prayer.
Keep the faith Scott. With everyday, there is new hope. Prayers for Kami's successful treatment.
Excellent news. Give it all to him, be prepared for a bumpy ride, hang on as he is driving, and follow through with Glorifying him.
Praise God through Jesus Christ!
Praying for Kami's full recovery and everlasting good health, in Jesus Christ's Holy name. AMEN. god bless your family Scott. She will beat this evil through the strength God gives her. I know the story. I was diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer over a year ago, and had surgery and radiation which ended just a year ago right now. Since then I have been scanned and none was seen. I did not let the fear overcome me, in fact, I never even got that feeling of dread. I have the Faith, and it will help Kami heal - that same Faith. She will beat it and live a long happy life and watch her kids grow up, with the help of God. Believe! I'm sure yours and all of our prayers had a lot to do with this diagnosis being early detection. Thank God!
