Featured Comment: Stephanie’s Story


On the Mayo Clinic Facebook page today, by a patient from Kansas City named Stephanie:

I am a cancer patient at the Mayo clinic in Rochester. I was 27 when I was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer, which was 2 weeks after my son was born three weeks premature. I have received the most amazing medical care there and would tell anyone to go there! Now I am almost three years cancer free and enjoying a wonderful life because of them! Everyone from the Doctors, to Nurses, to everyone at St. Mary’s hospital where I had surgery twice is wonderful! They really do care about you and your family!

      I found the music by following the link through the Des Moines Register (newspaper) (upper right corner of page). These folks are fantastic muscians who look and act much younger than their years. I hope you locate the article about them and the video of them playing another piano.

    My husband also works for Mayo. I cried when I read your letter and just felt that I had to send my condolences to you and your family.

    May God give you all the comfort you need from your loss.

    Sincerely Caring

    Pat Brown
