Julie and Fred Crandall

By Colin Fly

“To say the level of care at Mayo is unique is an understatement, and it is something I have not experienced anywhere else. When one hears that the patient comes first at Mayo, it is true. 

I have no words to thank Mayo Clinic. There is a human side that shines through everyone who works there, and as a patient that is something that contributes to and helps to make a successful recovery.

Mayo has given me the gift of extending my life. I am grateful that I can give back and know that in some way I am helping to make a difference.”
