The Story

During his courageous battle with brain and lung cancer, Todd never lost hope and maintained his ever-positive attitude. Sadly,  he passed away on Thanksgiving morning. Todd leaves behing a loving wife, and two beautiful daughters, aged 19 and 6.  He also leaves behind many friends, fellow military veterans, and many members of the local music community who continue to donate their money and time to assist the Mills family while they are paying enormous medical expenses. We invite you to join Team Todd to ensure that the Mills family doesn't have to face their challenges alone.

Team Todd update from our pal, Shane Stacks:

"OK so the latest I know from Todd after talking with him yesterday.

He is recovering well from the brain surgery and is in good spirits and has a good attitude.

Originally they were going to go after the lung cancer with radiation and chemotherapy, but the doctor then decided that he is going to remove a third of one of his lungs and then do chemo after that. The lung surgery is this Tuesday and then he will be in recovery for a few days. Evidently the lung surgery should get all of the mass in his lung.

Given that Todd has stage 4 cancer that had spread from his lungs to his brain stem his prognosis and treatment so far is actually pretty good. As he put it, it's a best case of a worst case scenario.

That's all I know medical-wise. He said work is being extremely cool with him during all of this. He mentioned he probably wouldn't be working again until after Thanksgiving, but I don't know if he meant just his freelancing or his day job as well.

He is very encouraged and appreciative of the help and fundraising and etc.

Team Todd update from our friend, Shane Stacks:

"Update on Todd.

I called Ginger today to see if he was in a regular room (as opposed to ICU) yet because I was going to go visit him if so. She said he was in a regular room but they were about to let him go home and rest for a couple of days.

On Monday he starts some appointments dealing with possible lung surgery, radiation and chemo. Nothing is for sure yet but the spot on his lungs came back malignant. They don't know what stage his lung cancer is in yet and hope to learn early next week.

From what I understand from Ginger and Jimmy / Amanda, the brain surgery was a success and they got everything. Last I heard results were not conclusive on whether that was malignant.

Team Todd update:

First, the bad news. The spot on Todd's lungs was found to be cancerous.

Now, the good news. If the cancer hasn't spread, the oncologists are going after it aggressively. Please keep Todd and his family in your thoughts and prayers as Team Todd tackles this next challenge.

Please keep the donations rolling in. You guys have surpassed $3,000 in only 5 days! $5, $10, $20, $100? Doesn't matter. Whatever you can afford to give will help.
