Worley cancer center opens in November
Friday, October 22, 2010
– Darryl Worley's vision will soon become a reality when the new Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center celebrates its grand opening on Nov. 3.
Previously scheduled to open in early 2011, the new center will be open for business in November. Located on the campus of the Hardin Medical Center in Savannah, Tenn., cancer patients will now be able to receive radiation and chemotherapy without the long drives currently required of many who need these treatments.
Since 2004, the Darryl Worley Foundation and the representatives of Hardin Medical Center and Hardin County Community and Healthcare Foundation worked to raise enough money to meet their $2 million goal for the project. Together, they have raised $1.7 million and hope to be debt free by the time of completion.
"We will be so pleased to show the new center to our community on Nov. 3," said Charlotte Burns, CEO Hardin Medical Center. "The center is a tribute to the generosity and commitment of Darryl, the Hardin Medical Center Board, the foundations, and our neighbors and friends. It will stand as a reminder of our determination to care for one another and share hope with those we serve."
"The generosity of all the donors from around the country and the Savannah area has been amazing," said Worley. "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."

It's been three and a half years since Darryl Worley gained fame for "Have You Forgotten?" Worley has changed with the political landscape, choosing to record a different type of patriotic song on his new 13-track album. "I Just Came Back from a War" is written from the perspective of an Iraqi war veteran returning home and how he deals with everyone around him saying he's a changed person. It's a powerful message, and it's pro-war sentiment is much more ...
Darryl Worley gets dark on his fourth and deepest album. The dozen songs often focus on the hardscrabble small town Southern life, murder, facing death and difficult relationships. This is not easy subject matter to digest even when Worley applies a lighter side musically (the well done "I Love Her, She Hates Me").
"If Something Should Happen" is sung in the voice of a cancer victim who may not survive. Not exactly the typical major label country fare these days. "Facing Death" describes the ...
