Darryl Worley Cancer Center To Open
Posted By Tom Roland On October 22, 2010 @ 10:48 AM In Country Music News | Comments Disabled
After six years of effort, the Darryl Worley  Cancer Center is set to open in Savannah, Tenn., next month.
Originally expected to open next year, the facility is located on the grounds at the Hardin Medical Center, allowing people in the area to have radiation and chemotherapy locally instead of driving long distances for their treatments. The cancer center cost $2 million to build, and Darryl has worked with a couple of Hardin County medical agencies to raise $1.7 million toward the project. They hope to have the remainder by the time construction is completed.
“The generosity of all the donors from around the country and the Savannah area has been amazing,” Darryl says. “I think it’s very surreal that this has happened so fast and just confirms that we are doing God’s work. This is a defining moment in my lifetime and career.”
Darryl has used his annual Tennessee River Run and a series of songwriter showcases to raise funds, enlisting such friends as Steve Wariner , Restless Heart, Jennifer Hanson , Keith Anderson  and songwriters Wynn Varble, Jim “Moose” Brown and Phil O’Donnell.
In the meantime, Darryl’s started a series of performances that allow him to give back in another way. He’s doing a total of seven free shows on military bases for enlisted men and women and their families. He’s already done a pair of them, at Fort Hood and Fort Sam Houston in Texas.
Other shows on his God & Country Tour include:
• Oct. 29 Fort Riley, Manhattan, Kan.
• Oct. 30 Fort Carson, Colorado Springs, Colo.
• Nov. 18 Fort Huachuca, Sierra Vista, Ariz.
• Nov. 20 Presidio of Monterey, Monterey, Calif.
• Nov. 22 Fort Lewis, Lakewood, Wash.
