Former University of Houston star basketball player and former Houston Rockets head coach Don Chaney is battling a rare, life-threatening disease associated with heart failure known as Transthyretin Amyloid Cardiomyopathy – or ATTR-CM,

But instead of keeping his battle private, Chaney seeks to raise awareness about his rare condition specifically for Black men, who are at a higher risk of having to deal with this same health issue.

Chaney appeared on the National Newspaper Publishers Association’s (NNPA) public affairs show “Let It Be Known,” to discuss the health issue with the show’s host Stacy Brown and president of the NNPA, Dr. Benjamin Chavis.
