Co-workers put on benefit to help ARNP with cancer

ARLINGTON – Co-workers at Arlington Family Medicine are planning a fund-raiser for Robert McNerney, who has stage 4 cancer.

Luanne Van Winkle, the clinic manager, said co-workers are putting on a benefit for McNerney to help him pay for costly medical treatments.

The event will be from 2-6 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Rhodes River Ranch in Oso. There will be a dinner, along with live and silent auctions.

Tickets for $25 include a pasta bar, salad and garlic bread. Van Winkle said they also hope to have music.

Items that have been donated for the auction include: Honda generator, Sun Mountain Lodge stay, two dump truck loads of gravel, daylong excavation rental, log-truckload of firewood and a timeshare stay in Victoria, B.C.

McNerney, an advanced registered nurse practitioner, is 52 and has two daughters. He has worked in the community for 16 years.

Van Winkle said McNerney’s chemotherapy treatments have been so intense it has been hard for him to work. He has lung cancer, even though he has never smoked.

“It’s been quite a battle for him,” she said.
