Doug and his family are in need of our prayers and our support!  While on his farm outside Tulare, CA on November 3, 2018, Doug suffered a stroke while driving his ATV.  He crashed into an irrigation canal and sustained severe physical trauma. He has a punctured lung, several broken ribs, lacerations to his head and broke his back in seven places. 

Many people in the Tulare/Visalia area know Doug and his family (Alison; Drew, Luke & Makenna) and many more know Doug from his involvement in the dairy industry and his work to educate people about the dangers of bunker silos after his accident in 2009. 

This fund was started as a way for all those who wish to support the DeGroff family during this most difficult time. The road to recovery will be LONG (...and painful) and we are unsure of the needs that may arise.

Please contribute whatever amount you can to help Doug and his family.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Overwhelmed by the generosity that many have shown in support of Doug and his family during this difficult time.

A short update...Doug has been transferred to UC-San Francisco Medical Center for further testing and consultation. The injury to his spine is significant and it was determined that the relocation to specialists at UC-SF was his best chance for a successful recovery. His path to healing is still unclear, but we know that it will be long and challenging.

Please continue to pray for his healing; his relief from pain; his new doctors; and especially for Alison and their children who are spending their Thanksgiving in a most unexpected way.

Please share with others who may know Doug and his family and might wish to show some support for his recovery. Thank you to everyone who has contributed!! May God bless you and your families during this holiday season.
