Since being diagnosed with cancer for the first time in 2002, I've had seven surgeries -- with the last three at Mayo Clinic in Rochester -- and multiple stays at Saint Cloud Hospital.

So yeah, it's safe to say that I feel very fortunate to have my ongoing healthcare these days being handled by the folks in Saint Cloud and down in Rochester.
