The family would like to say a special thank-you to Mayo Clinic Oncology (Dr. Hubbard, Jessica Mitchell, and his special niece, Veronica). Because of them, he was so proud to be part of a research study that took his blood to Italy to assist in researching a cure. Also a special thanks is extended to the Seasons Hospice team for being so amazing.
