Daren Coggins

Daren Coggins, 36, is in a fight for his life. Coggins, the game warden for Lowndes County for 7 years, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer last summer. After surgery and six months of intense chemotherapy, he now faces a major surgery at The Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Tulsa. OK on November 7th. A lifelong resident of Lowndes County and a graduate of New Hope High School, Daren is married with 2 children. He is the son of Priscilla and Jacky Coggins.

Several of his friends are jumping in to raise money to help with his medical expenses by holding a raffle for a Browning Maxus 12 gauge shotgun valued at $1600. Tickets are $10 each with the drawing to be held on December 17, 2011. If interested, please mail your check (payable to Daren Coggins) and completed raffle tickets to Marnie Coggins, 41 Derek Drive, Columbus, MS 39702, or tickets are available at Coggins Shoe Shop, 2014 Highway 45 North, Phone 662-327-1123.

Marnie, Daren’s sister and an almost 3 year breast cancer survivor herself, would also like to add how proud she is of Daren. She states, “To talk to him, you’d never know he has it! He doesn’t sit around and dwell on it or feel sorry for himself! He is fighting it head on and with a positive attitude! I’d say he’s ‘fighting like a girl.”  Marnie was diagnosed with cancer at age 38. Daren was diagnosed at age 35. The odds of 2 siblings being diagnosed with cancer under the age of 40? 1 in a million (per Daren’s doctor at BMH).
