Aaron Martens Benefit Tournament and Auction

Most of you have heard the news that professional angler Aaron Martens was diagnosed with brain cancer. Aaron had a pair of surgeries – one on April 6 and the other April 22 – to remove quarter-sized tumors from his brain. Aaron recovered well from his surgeries and then underwent weeks of chemo and radiation treatment.

Aaron is facing this battle head-on and is relentless in his effort to defeat this cancer. He has a great positive attitude and faith in God to see him and his family through this very tough time.

As you know, medical coverage often does not cover all treatment costs and patients often end up with significant bills.


To assist with the medical costs that are expected to exceed well over $1,000,000.00, we have organized an online, national benefit tournament & auction that will take place from September 12-20 with all proceeds (which are tax-deductible) going directly to the Martens' family.

Some of the biggest names in the sport of professional bass fishing have come together for this great cause and donated their time for a guided fishing trip of a lifetime.

In addition to this GoFundMe donation, you can also:
