Stuck in a loop

Hi all,

I am seeking help with a project I am attempting and have run into an issue I've had trouble finding an answer for. What I am trying to do is have six push buttons that activate a different loop of code when each button is pushed.

I have wired my push buttons to a single input recognizing which button is pressed depending on the resistance value returned as instructed in this guide

That's all good and functioning. The issue that I'm having is that when I push one of the buttons the analog read function stops while that if loop is in progress and I cannot activate any of the other loops until that loop has finished. What I need to do is have them be executable simultaneously. Is this something that is possible to do?

Here's my code:

Any help or just a simple point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading.
