Donated Robe Connects Washington Tornado Survivor to Advanced Cancer Treatment in Warrenville
Nov 22, 2017 2:07 PM - Just days after losing his house and nearly every possession in the Washington, Illinois tornado of 2013, Scott McLintock picked up a robe at a donation center. The logo and name on it -- CDH (Central DuPage Hospital) Proton Center -- didn't mean anything to McLintock at the time. Flash forward three years and that robe would be connected to McLintock's fight against cancer. In the fall of 2016, McClintock was diagnosed with prostate cancer. His doctors recommended surgery and standard radiation, but McLintock wanted another option. He did some research online and found the Northwestern Medicine Chicago Proton Center, located nearly 150 miles northwest of Washington in Warrenville, Illinois.
