Show Notes:

Getting behind the microphone with Rev. Percy McCray is Rev. Daniel Horton, a prostate cancer patient, diagnosed in 2007, who treated at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Chicago.

Rev. Horton, who possesses a contagious enthusiasm for life, drove to CTCA from Detroit weekly to receive his radiation treatments. He was determined that he would not die from his cancer and committed to being completely engaged in the overall clinical environment of CTCA.

“I just kept upbeat,” says Rev. Horton, a friend of Rev. McCray’s for more than 14 years. “I kept believing, I’m going to be excited that it [cancer] is going to leave!”

Dressed in suit and tie for every visit, Rev. Horton was determined to meet and greet the clinical staff at the hospital and provide hope and encouragement to other patients along the way. Rev. Horton attributes his strong abiding faith in Jesus Christ as the primary driver for his hopefulness and belief that he could survive the unwelcome news of being a cancer patient.

Sit back and listen to this man of the people, man of hope, and man of faith who refused to be denied his right to stay on planet earth.


  • “I was a little leery when I first heard the term [cancer].”
  • “When I came to CTCA and had a chance to meet people, I made the decision this is where I want to be.”
  • “Lord, you made this body, so if you made it, and you gave me a way to take care of it.”
  • “I’m going to trust you to give me the right diagnosis and people to be around.”
