Friends of Jim Overman

$5,678.19 Raised!

Start: Jan 9, 2019 - End: May 31, 2019

This past Christmas Eve, 2018 Jim’s daughters took him to the hospital for testing because Jim had been slurring his words a little. What they discovered came as a complete surprise. Jim has a 4cm brain tumor in his left frontal lobe. Jim is undergoing brain surgery tomorrow (January 9, 2019) to remove the tumor and to hopefully gain answers as to what all his battle entails.

Gifts and purchases of any amount are greatly appreciated to help Jim with ongoing medical expenses. Jim is unaware even that this fund is being set up, but sometimes it’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. Ha! And anyone that knows Jim, knows that he never wants to be a burden to anyone. He’s been a constant steady for his family through both highs and lows in his family. I’d love to be able to surprise him and show him just how much he means to so many.

And last, but certainly not least, please also just pray for the Overman family. Pray for Jim, his kids, all of his extended family, and for all the doctors and nurses who will be caring for him.

Feels like this Iowa Winter

Hello. I hope this finds you all safe and WARM (those in Iowa reading this really know what I mean) as this Winter feels relentless! Unfortunately, it seems as though Jim’s battle is similar! Jim was transferred to St. Luke’s inpatient rehab. However, after a few days there, he developed a blood clot from his thigh to his calf, so he was transferred to the neuro floor at St. Luke’s. Just yesterday Jim was transferred back to rehab. Please continue to pray for Jim! His platelets are currently low, so he once again has another hurdle to climb. Pray specifically for his platelets to come up and for the blood clot to dissolve.


Jim and his family are so incredibly thankful for ALL of your love, support, and prayers. Prayers for endurance and strength for Jim, his family, and all his doctors, nurses, staff, and caretakers. Jim went in thinking he would be home from the hospital in a week, and tomorrow starts a new month. Let’s keep rallying behind him and his family.


If you feel led to donate to Jim’s cause you can do so here through One Mission. Custom t-shirts are still available, as well as many other great products with 40% of each purchase being donated.


Warmest wishes and much gratitude to you all.


Whew!

You guys are all amazing! You’ve been faithfully praying and generously shopping and donating all in support of Jim. Thank you!


It’s been quite a week! There have been some pretty scary moments. Jim battled seizures for a while, and as you were last updated he had been transferred back to ICU. He’s struggled to eat, to drink, and to even speak at times. His heart rate skyrocketed and sent him into A-fib, and the family has been on their knees begging and pleading with the Lord for healing and a return to “normal life.” And now here we are.


Yesterday was a GOOD day! Jim is eating and drinking. He’s speaking with his strong voice, and he even laughed with two of his boys! What a sweet, sweet sound! (Thanks, Tim and Jacob, for that laugh. 😉) His family is feeling encouraged again after yesterday. Hopefully and prayerfully, the plan is that early this week (possibly even tomorrow) Jim will be transferred to St. Luke’s Acute Rehabilitation.


So please keep praying! If you feel led, check out his fund. Feel free to shop for some really cool gear, with 40% of every purchase being donated, or you can just donate to help Jim with all of his out of pocket medical costs. Remember, the family even designed a cool t-shirt that you can purchase to wear to remind you to pray for Jim. You guys are making a difference!


Back to ICU

Friends, please continue to pray. Jim has had a rough go of things over the weekend. He started having seizures, and they had to transfer him back to ICU where he currently still is. Recovery seems to be slow, (as can be imaginable. He did just undergo brain surgery!) with many obstacles still in his path.


As some of you may have heard, Jim was laid off this past July, and now has very limited health insurance coverage. Rehabilitation, therapy, and even doctor visits.


Remember you’ll find a cool custom t-shirt that the family designed with 40% of EVERY order going to Jim. A little background on the t-shirts from the family. While on vacation with family and friends in California , whenever asked what he wanted to do or where he wanted to go or what he wanted to eat, Jim’s response was always “ I don’t care I’m on vacation!” So from then on it became the slogan for every trip . Of course everyone is looking forward to a full recovery and many more vacations with Jim where they can hear him jovially state, “I don’t care. I’m on vacation.”


You’ll find the option to purchase t-shirts, tanks, sweatshirts, and even coffee mugs. Or there’s always the option to just donate, if you find yourself saying that you just don’t need any product. You can scroll down and click “Donate Now.”


Thank you so much for ALL of your love, care, prayers, and support! You truly are making a difference!


2 days post surgery for Jim

Hello! Just wanted to thank you all for praying for Jim, his medical caretakers, and his family. Jim is still in ICU. Please continue to pray for health and healing for Jim, so that he can be transferred out of ICU. That’s the next step and goal.


Thanks again to everyone who has donated in some way to Jim and his family! Please keep sharing, and please keep praying.


Wishing you all a great day, as today is a great day to change the world.


Update on Jim’s surgery

Just wanted to give you all a short update on Jim. Surgery went well yesterday, and it was a little shorter than anticipated. The surgery team had to leave less than 10% of the tumor because of how it was sitting in the brain with blood vessels. He is currently in the ICU being closely monitored, as he is still at risk for infection and stroke.


Please continue to pray for Jim’s health and healing. He has a long road ahead of him, and there are still many unknowns. Thank you to those who have prayed, made cash donations on here, and shopped for a purpose. The entire Overman family is most grateful for your love and support.
