Doug left us this morning but will forever be in our hearts. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. We feel broken and shattered but so grateful and blessed for our time with him and the love he shared with everyone.

Doug Coleman- March 25 1956- March 31 2019
March 5th, 2019
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Doug Coleman and his friends and family as we have received word that he has had a relapse with kidney cancer that has metastasized. Family friend, Tammie Cramer, has shared the following information.
“There’s no doubt if you have ever seen this contagious smile that you couldn’t quickly forget it, or the giving, kind heart of Doug Coleman, AQHA/APHA/ABRA/IBHA/PtHA World class Halter horse trainer and partner in Coleman/Hassett Show Horses. Doug has had a relapse with kidney cancer and is currently fighting Stage 4 kidney cancer that has metastasized. Being a trainer, there is no insurance to cover treatment and expenses. His wife, Marcy, is holding things together the best she can. They would never ask for help, so I’m asking for them!”
“They both give so much of their time and hearts so freely to others, but now they need help. The chemotherapy pills alone are $20,000 per month and that isn’t counting the hospital bills, doctor bills, or every day expenses. This GoFundMe is being placed to go into their checking account.”
“We’re praying for anyone that can help, to please help, so they can spend their time together peacefully instead of fighting to figure out how to pay for treatment. Please respect their time and send a email or text if you’re wanting to send personal thoughts, or contact myself for more information. Please keep Doug and Marcy Coleman both in your prayers. Doug Coleman has made so many people’s dreams come true; please help him with this dream!
