Meet local hero Rick Bianco, a 79-year-old quilter who lives in the Panhandle.
Rick, who is originally from New Jersey, and his wife, Sandra, moved here three years ago from Florida. Rick’s health issues spurred the couple to move to South Carolina to be closer to one of their sons.
Shortly after their arrival, Rick had cancer surgery, followed by radiation treatments, which resulted in a heart condition. He also has low vision from failed cataract surgeries.
