Shanna Talks About “Brighter Tomorrows” for Children With Cancer

December 5, 2014

Shanna Decker being interviewed by StoryCorps

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.

Thank you to everyone that participated in the event and for those that contributed. I was unaware of a Mayo team and was talked into joining a team of Hormel employees (Team HYPE). Thanks to the generous donations of many, the final contritubtion total from the Plunging for Pink event was about $57,000.00.
