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.

Shanna Decker was diagnosed with bone cancer when she was 7 years old and an innovative surgery helped save her life. Now 24 years old, Shanna talks with StoryCorps producers and Dana Sparks, from the Mayo Clinic News Network, about “Brighter Tomorrows” for children with cancer. Listen to Shanna's story.
