Many of you know Doug as a long-standing Aspen Valley resident and manager of Rustique. Anyone who knows Doug knows him as a generous and kind person. My sister and I are so lucky to have him as our brother, he's always there for support and encouragement. He selflessly offered his time and energy to take care of our mother after her medical problems, taking her into his home. Recently he has had such happiness come into his life- a beautiful fiancé named Nok, a growing family (four kids), a new house, a new baby and an exciting new job as a Director of Food and Beverage for a hotel in the Snowmass area.
This stroke can be devastating for Doug and his family. Doug is a fighter! And while we are hopeful he will recover fully, the medical expenses, physical therapy and time off work will be an overwhelming burden for Nok (Jureerat Nawieng) and the kids. The funds that you provide will pay for any uncovered medical costs, in-home therapy and other financial expenses such as mortgage payments that arise during the period that Doug is unable to return to work. Thank you for any support you can provide to help Doug's family get through this trying time. And please, please, spread the word.
All contributions are sent directly to Nok, no money will be used for the organization of the benefit dinner or auction that was held on April 2nd. Everything for this event was donated by people and businesses across Aspen. (Gofundme asked us to clarify this).
If you prefer not to use Gofundme and would prefer to help in any other way, please contact Doug's sisters Lisa or Stephanie directly.
