October 24, 2014

Randy and Chrystal

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 for the next ten weeks, a new story will be posted on the Mayo Clinic News Network.

Randy Setzer experienced multiple blood clots stemming from a genetic blood disease he didn’t know he had. Consequently, doctors and the emergency team at Mayo Clinic in Eau Claire, Wisc., had to bring him back to life numerous times. He and his wife Crystal talk about the life-and-death experience.  Click the link to listen to Randy and Crystal's story.
