Prayers please for Brian "Bam_SHO" Michael......
« on: May 04, 2022, 04:46:32 PM »
Not sure if the news made its respective rounds since this morning, however, Brian called me 1st thing this morning to let me know of some pretty terrible developments in his ongoing battle with cancer.....

Cut to the chase, his medical team advised that his cancer has spread to numerous areas throughout his body, and that the decision was made to stop treatment, as there's nothing more that can be done to save him.

He was in tears. Scared. Upset and rightfully so. I was at a loss for words, but truly appreciated him reaching out to me personally to let me know he isn't expecting to be around long term.

He made a comment that I wouldn't see his ugly mug no more. I replied "So not true my friend. I have plenty of pictures to remind me of our shenanigans, that will tie me over until it is my time to go. In fact, I fully expect you to be standing at the gates of heaven above, waiting for me, and as I pass through those gates, I fully expect you to give me a swift crack on my ass and welcome me inside accordingly".

He laughed at that. So that's good. Just tried to make him happy. Even if for just a brief moment.

I'm sure Brian would appreciate any of you reaching out here, posting a message or two and wish him, his wife, and only daughter your prayers as they'll all need them for sure.

Words are always hard to find in situations like this. However, I hope Brian and his family find solace during this time.

Thank you for posting this.  I had hoped for better news, but the fight's not over yet.  Sometimes prayers and faith make miracles happen.  Hope for the best, either way.

Heavenly Father I come to you standing in the gap for and with family friends for brother Brian. As you are all knowing you know our selfish desires are for him to remain among us. But let your will be done. Comfort his family as only you can. In Jesus name, amen
