Doug is an artist, a fine arts professor at WSU Tri-Cities, a husband, step parent, a papa of two, a doggy dad and animal lover. He was diagnosed with colon cancer in December of 2017 and has been a fighter ever sense. We created this site so that all of Dougs loved ones can get updates on how he is doing. We appreciate everyone reaching out but we think this will be the easiest way to communicate as we are busy talking with drs, staying on top of responsibilities and most importantly being there for Doug. We will try our best to update daily here, please check here if you would like an update. Thank you all so much for your love and support for Doug, we relay this to Doug and it’s very comforting for him knowing how many of you are rooting for him from near and far.
