About Us

In 2011, Stephen York Coleman, lost his courageous three year battle against brain cancer. He was only 37 years old. Tailgating Against Cancer finds inspiration in supporting other cancer patients, their families and physicians who take on the battle against cancer. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for a fellowship in medical oncology at The University of Tennessee Medical Center and the UT Graduate School of Medicine. Stephen fought his illness with perseverance, courage, determination, and dignity. His legacy will continue as the family raises funds in his memory through Something for Stephen.

The fellowship established by the Coleman family in memory of Stephen Y. Coleman recently had an article featured in UT Medical Center and UT Graduate School of Medicine’s magazine Frontier Fall/Winter 2015 Issue. Read Article
