Loving Care Inspires Generous Support

Serving Her Community Through Volunteerism and Philanthropy

Their love story began on a ski slope. It culminated in a 30-year marriage that eventually found them making their home in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Daryl LeDuc and her late husband, Rich, began their lives together in their home state of Connecticut. They pursued busy careers in architecture and construction while enjoying a second home in North Myrtle Beach. In 2008, the couple settled permanently at the beach and became valued members of the community.

Daryl and Rich were relishing their new life following Rich’s retirement in 2019, when Rich began experiencing health problems. As a commercial pilot, he was traveling back and forth to see his FAA Medical Examiner in Connecticut when their future neighbor, Dr. Timothy Carr, recommended a primary care physician at McLeod Health Seacoast.

Dr. Carr continued to track Rich’s health, which rapidly began to decline. He was on call when Rich came to the Emergency Department and was diagnosed with acute renal failure. Further testing revealed an infection on the mitral valve of his heart. Sadly, Rich experienced complications during his recovery from open heart surgery and passed away in April of 2020.

Daryl recalls the level of care and comfort they received at McLeod. “The mission of McLeod Health is truly meaningful,” Daryl said. “It is very apparent in the network of support provided and the ways in which all team members consistently treat patients and their loved ones with compassion, dignity, and respect.”

To repay the kindness and professionalism she and Rich experienced, Daryl has become a dedicated supporter of a number of McLeod Health Foundation initiatives.

In Rich’s honor, Daryl established the first Endowed Cardiac Scholarship Fund at McLeod Health Seacoast to assist cardiac patients struggling to afford follow up visits to their physician, medications, and therapy.

Daryl also sponsors the Dine Out for Breast Cancer event to honor her sister, who died of breast cancer, as well as the Jockey and Juleps event.

In addition, Daryl generously gives of her time, serving on the McLeod Loris Seacoast Foundation Board. And, to provide for patients and families in her beloved community for generations to come, Daryl recently included the McLeod Foundation in her will.

“Access to excellent local healthcare, with physicians who are friendly and relatable, is so important,” Daryl explained.
