We write a lot about healthcare. We talk to patients, nurses and many, many doctors. While most physicians are kind and courteous, there are a few that hold a very, very special place in our hearts.
Like Arthur Chaney, at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center.
He is an incredible radiation oncologist and all around cool guy. He’s in a great band made up of physicians. He is a brilliant and talented man who, through his oncology work, has brought many people in the Mooresville community hope and a longer life.
I don’t know that much about him beyond his incredible medical skills, but I know today when I learned he has cancer it pierced my heart to the very core. I know he is young, and that he has a family that adores him. And, at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center, there’s an entire staff of medical professionals who, though they deal with illness everyday, have to be reeling from such a devastating diagnosis.
We can’t offer Dr. Chaney and his friends and family much more than these words. But we figured it was the least we could do for a man who has given so much to so many. Including us.
Godspeed, Dr. Chaney.
