Listening to patients is what medical teams at Mayo Clinic do each day. To honor Mayo's 150th Anniversary, StoryCorps was asked to listen to and record several patient stories. Each Friday, until the end of 2014, a new story will be posted on the Mayo Clinic News Network.
Nara is interviewed by her Mayo Clinic physician Dr. Sandhya Pruthi about Nara's breast cancer and why early detection was important in her case. Nara also reflects on her mother’s ovarian cancer treatment. Click the link to listen to Nara's story .
