Fund drive for Tarkio, Mo.’s Landon Shaw splashes toward success

People have been praying, pledging and plunging into cold waters for Landon, a boy diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. More than $233,000 has come in for Landon’s medical bills and expenses. People from every state have plunged, as well as 28 countries. They’re also praying for Cole Nilson. When the 31-year-old Iowa man plunged for Landon, diving headfirst into a farm pond, he struck the bottom. Now he is partially paralyzed.
