I don't know where to put this, but since I am asking for help, this fits the bill. Please send prayers up for Todd Overton.

If ya'll haven't heard, Todd Overton of Overton Fisheries https://overtonfisheries.com/ is battling Stage 4 Colon Cancer. If anybody has dealt with any type of cancer, ya'll know what stage 4 means. For the past 3 years, Todd has been bravely battling stage 4 colorectal cancer, which has now spread to his liver and lungs. Despite his unwavering courage and determination, he faces an uphill battle, especially as his insurance company refuses to cover crucial treatments that could save his life.

Here's a few links to some people that are trying to help Todd:

Brandon Overton: https://www.facebook.com/brandon.overton.3133 Donating two guided fishing trips to people that donate to Todd's gogfndme page. Brandon's phone number is 940-255-7133 if you have any questions.

The GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-tod...um=copy_link_all&utm_source=customer

Thanks!

Scott

So sorry to hear this. He gave me good advice over the last several months after my lake was completed. I had no idea what he was facing. May God be with him.

Many of us have had the pleasure of spending time with Todd Overton.

If you are able to extend a helping hand, know that Todd is one of the good ones.

Will do and will put Todd on several prayer lists. Also, I had 4th stage cancer and did the magnetic resonance and listened to Rife frequencies for cancer on You tube. That was in 2008. All cancers are different and respond to various modalities. My cancer Doc said of what I was doing, I can not comment on that. But, positive attitudes, prayer and whatever you think might work is your decision. He was hamstrung by the AMA. I think he knew more than he could talk about.

Todd is a great guy and this is horrible news. Sending healing vibes down his way.

Go fund me grabs 18% - I'd like to donate directly to Todd/family. Anyone know his Paypal or Venmo? I'd rather have that 18% go directly to the family...every little bit counts.

If you would prefer to wire or ACH some funds directly to Todd, I have his banking information.

Send me a PM with your email address, and I'll clear it with Todd to make sure he's good with me sharing it.

I'm sharing an update Todd posted last night.

"Thank you to all who have donated, or prayed for me, or shared the link. I am so fortunate to have this overwhelming support from friends and family, and I thank God for it, and I intend to pay this forward somehow in the future.

I started my first immunotherapy treatment today. The doctor spent another hour with me, going through successful cases comparable to my own, where he achieved complete molecular remission with this revolutionary approach. The goal is to rebuild my natural immune system, which has been tested and is currently not functional due to chemo/radiation/cancer/stress. The doc intends to combine this immunotherapy approach with a targeted drug, check my progress on the regular, make adjustments, and lead me towards complete healing. Could take a long time because of my current condition.

Please continue to pray for me. God Bless You All !!"

Thanks for the update Al.

Also glad you told Todd that he has an additional prayer/support group beyond the ones that he has closer to home! Every little bit helps.

Sharing this update. I'm not sure if this is brother Brandon, or nephew Brandon.

Today by Brandon Overton, Organizer


"Dear Friends, Family, and Generous Donors,

As Todd continues his courageous battle against his Cancer, I wanted to share an update with you all.

It's been almost two weeks since Todd began his new treatment, and while Todd and his doctor remain optimistic, we must acknowledge the present reality and the difficult road ahead. The reality is that his pain levels have increased significantly are expected to increase even more before they start to subside as he progresses through his healing journey.

We are immensely grateful for all the prayers and support that have been pouring in from all corners. Your kindness and generosity have brought us hope and strength during these challenging times.

Thanks to your incredible contributions, we are thrilled to announce that we have reached almost half of our fundraising goal! Praise God for His blessings and for each one of you who has stood by Todd's side.

We covet your prayers as we continue to navigate this journey. Please pray for Todd’s physical healing, mental health, relief of pain, continued funding, hope of recovery, and peace of mind and soul. Your love and support mean the world to Todd and our family and we are eternally grateful for all of you.

In Christ,


Brandon"
