    Mayo’s Biggest Booster

Each year, Marnie Hensel, of Wayzata, Minn., comes to Mayo Clinic for her annual checkup through the Executive Health Program. During her visit in early 2004, physicians noticed a spot on her lung x-ray. A biopsy found that it was lung cancer in the earliest stage (1A), and it was completely removed. Six years later, with no further treatment, Mrs. Hensel is still cancer-free and says that she’s “Mayo’s biggest booster.”

In the video below, Mrs. Hensel shares her story and how she considers coming to Mayo Clinic a “mini vacation.”
