Captain Buddy Recovery

Captain Buddy recently was recently admitted to the hospital with severe abdominal pain. Upon further evaluation, he was diagnosed with Pancreatitis. He spent over two weeks in the hospital and will have a very long road to recovery ahead of him.

He is now back in the comfort of his own home fighting this battle. Every donation to help pay the medical bills is greatly appreciated during this hard time. Buddy has built most of his life within this community, of which he recently won ‘Best of Marathon Fishing Charter’. We ask this time the community can come together for him.
