Stop a timer from autostarting using OnSelect property of button

Is it possible to stop a timer set to autostart using a button onSelect property?

I have loaded my app using a deep link and now when I return from my edit screen to my dashboard it keeps taking me back to my edit screen with the specific ID. I do not want this to happen.

Suggestions on how I can get this loop to stop? I figured this would be easy but it is proving to be more difficult than I thought.
Thanks! 🙂

Since this doesn't seem possible - I'm not sure how others have gotten around this issue. I developed a welcome screen with my logo to start my app and have 2 timers on it.

The first timer to end loads the deep link that was causing the issue.
Duration: 600
OnTimerEnd: If(!IsBlank(Param("ID")),Navigate(Edit, Cover,{LoadLead:LookUp(Lead_Data, ID = Value(Param("ID")))}));

The second timer is based on if the app has not been loaded by clicking on a deep link from a powerapps generated email.
Duration: 650
OnTimerEnd: Navigate(Dashboard, ScreenTransition.Fade)
