Gary Hackney explains the "Wow" factor for the first time visitors to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America Zion location. "It's more of a resort lobby than a medical facility," Hackney said. Hackney knows what life is like for a cancer patient. A thyroid cancer survivor, the McHenry resident works as a cancer fighter ambassador. He drives to Zion a few times a week to talk to patients and their families.
