Gage Overton Memorial Fund

Gage Overton Fund


The Gage Overton Memorial Fund is a tribute to the cherished memory of our beloved Gage. Gage was born June 13, 1998, to his adoring parents Ryan and Chrissy. He was a 2016 graduate from Dubiski Career High School in Grand Prairie, Texas, where he took advanced placement courses and was in the engineering pathway. He was a brilliant, fun, and carefree young man who loved spending time with friends and family, anime, the drifting scene, performance mechanics, and his 1995 Nissan 240SX. Gage was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma, a rare type of pediatric cancer, at 16-years-old. He endured chemotherapy, radiation, and multiple surgeries and went into remission his senior year of high school. After graduation he moved to Orlando, Florida to pursue a career in performance mechanics and learn the ropes at a turbo shop. Unfortunately, a few months later, he relapsed with metastases to his lungs and pleural lining, which was inoperable, and he tragically passed away September 23, 2017, at the age of 19. Gage was very interested in biotechnology, especially gene-editing cancer research, and he wanted to contribute to a cure for his disease. Sadly, Gage’s cancer advanced quickly, and he was not eligible for t-cell trials as he had hoped.  All of his tumors were donated to research, and we will continue to fulfill his wishes to contribute to a cure and help other pediatric patients with this fund.

Funds received will benefit childhood cancer research, sarcoma research, and local pediatric hospital oncology departments in Gage’s memory.

Thank you so much for donating in Gage’s memory to help other children and teens who are still fighting.
