Scott McMeekan is a 45 year old husband to Joy and father to their three beautiful daughters: Kelsi age 14, Sydney age 11, and Isabella age 3. On October 22, 2013 their lives changed forever when Scott entered the emergency room with stomach pain and after a cat scan was told he had cancer. He was immediately admitted to the hospital and several tests were run and surgery was performed to find the primary source of his cancer. On November 1, 2013 they received the pathology report back and found he has appendix cancer that has spread to his abdomen. Contact the Organizer
Scott did have health insurance but it was just a mini medical policy and not a major medical so their maximum limits are extremely low. His hospital stay has already maxed out their insurance, and we need to raise money because the bill from his 12 day stay in the hospital is just shy of $65,000. His doctors are saying that his cancer is incurable, and after much soul searching Scott has decided against the treatment they are suggesting. The side effects would be many, and he has an increased risk due to his bowel surgery of suffering serious complications. Currently, he is bathing his immune system with a intense diet of juicing, supplementation, and lots of prayer.
Scott has devoted the last 2 years running 3 Minutes Out, Inc. in honor of his wife's brother, Jon Tumilson, who was a Navy SEAL that was killed while serving in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011. He wants to beat this not only to continue to be a loving husband and father to his beautiful family but wants to continue to serve to help make a difference in the lives of our active duty military, veterans, and their families. 3 Minutes Out, Inc. sends care packages to our deployed soldiers as well as being in the process of working on other programs to benefit those who are and have served.
