QUINCY COLEMAN

FOUNDER

“I am living with stage IV cancer and so are you.”

Quincy Coleman, Founder of H-OM-E 

Singer/songwriter Coleman, daughter of famed actor Dabney Coleman, was diagnosed with stage IV cancer in 2009. “When I decided to take responsibility for my part in the manifestation of the dis-ease in my body, the healing began and it reversed without western medicine or conventional treatment…by coming home to my soul, listening to my heart and loving the cancer.” 

Coleman believes with great passion, that if each one of us can take responsibility for our part in the manifestation of the dis-ease of our global family and the planet we can heal humanity and the earth.
