Last month KIX-96 and Big River Broadcasting’s beloved on-air personality “Fletch Brown” (aka Steifon J. Passmore), was diagnosed with cancer. Fletch was referred to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston which specializes in the treatment he needs. He will undergo a chemo schedule here in the Shoals that will last 4-5 months. Working regularly may be difficult as he deals with the side effects.

Following chemo, Fletch will have 3-4 weeks of radiation treatments in Houston. After the tumor has been reduced they will surgically remove it. At that point, the hope is that he will only have to travel to Houston every few months to check that it hasn’t returned, and he is cancer free!

Fletch/Steifon would literally give you the shirt off of his back. He is a valued member of our Shoals Community. He feels his best when he’s lifting you up.  However, now he needs our help. The bills are coming in from only the last month and this is just for the testing they’ve done, he hasn’t been treated in any way yet.  A GoFundMe account has been set up and whatever you can donate would be greatly appreciated – the GoFundMe link is  You can also search GoFundMe for Steifon J. Passmore the beneficiary (this is Fletch’s given name). And if you see Fletch, let him know you’re a member of his support army!
