Last year I was diagnosed with 3 types of cancer after experiencing real pain in my stomach area. I had leukemia, large B CELL and Follicular lymphoma all at once. Needless to say, our initial reaction was devastating. We went to Rochester and saw Dr. Parikh. After test after tests, we started a series of all day chemo treatments at Rochester that lasted 4 months. I love Mayo and the people. They along with much prayer and great medicine helped save my life. I used what I teach leaders and the "Power of 3" gave me a path to walk through this incredibly tough time. Today, all cancer is gone. I love the Lord and Mayo Clinic. Dr. Parikh is the best!

Hello @robbhiller, welcome to Connect. Facing a diagnosis of all three of those cancers must have been overwhelming, but it is great to hear that you were able to conquer all three. Here are a few discussions that you may also find worth your time to read through:

@robbiller, if you are comfortable sharing, would you mind talking about how receiving chemotherapy went for you?
