CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

On Tuesday, September 4th, the DNC will officially kick off. Tens of thousands from around the world will head to the Queen City and there's no secret, the convention will have a major impact locally, including on people battling cancer.

Matthews resident Sue Falco is fighting stage four colon cancer, and says the DNC will force a major cancer treatment center to close. Carolina's Hematology Oncology Associates on South Tryon will close for four days during the DNC, because of security and traffic concerns.

"It's kind of fascinating how an event like this impacts a city," Falco said.

Carolina's Hematology Oncology Associates will have two other locations open around Mecklenburg County during the DNC. An employee says South Tryon patients will be able to receive treatment at the two other locations.

"I'm very fortunate that I can drive myself to and from chemotherapy but I know a lot of people depend on family members who have to drive a distance to get to their therapy," she said.

WBTV reached out to management at Carolinas Hematology Oncology Associates for comment, but did not hear back. Falco says she understands the office will close because of its proximity to the convention.

If this was an issue at Republicans’ back door, they would have arranged for the clinic to be able to carry on in temporary quarters during the convention.

Democrats? They think cancer patients should be flattered their city is being visited by such royalty.

But wait! Wasn’t Romney accused of killing some women that died of cancer because she lost her insurance that had a cure that worked on stage four cancer in 22 days? Just find that insurance company and the problem is solved!

It’s clear; Democrats hate cancer patients.
