Our donation to the University of Tennessee Cancer Center Stephen Y. Coleman Fellowship of Oncology for 2023 was $75,000!! None of this would be possible without the support of our community, donors, volunteers, family, and friends. We are truly grateful for your donations and commitment to this cause that is so important to us. With your help, we will continue working towards our next goal of $1,000,000!

About Us

Tailgating Trailer

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.
