Hanna Hughes was just 16 when she was diagnosed with cancer. That diagnosis led to Hanna spending long stretches of time at Mayo Clinic Children''s Center in Rochester, Minnesota, where, eventually, she would have her right leg amputated. The experience had a profound influence on the direction of Hanna''s life. And it turns out, on the lives of others as well. Ben Groteboer and Allison Galkowski visited Hanna often, and noticed another group of people trying to make things easier for her: the nurses who were caring for her. Ben and Allison made a decision. They were going to become pediatric nurses someday. And both hoped to return to Mayo Clinic.

Dr. Raymond Lee encouraged me to come to Mayo Clinic for my residency. He said, To become a surgeon, you need to be trained by an A surgeon otherwise youll need to be retrained. Mayo has A surgeons. He was right. There is a lot of expertise at Mayo Clinic and an expectation for excellence. I feel loyal to Mayo Clinic and try to support its mission and honor our values every day. Demonstrating that loyalty philanthropically is just one way leadership can express our commitment to Mayo Clinic. - Charles Rosen, M.D., Mayo Clinic benefactor and employee . . . #FacesOfPhilanthropy #BecauseOfYou #WeAreMayoClinic

Brittany Blake, a nurse anesthetist at Mayo Clinics Florida campus, has participated in many international missions trips over the past five years. But her recent experience as a volunteer with Mercy Ships, an international faith-based organization that sends floating hospitals to some of the poorest nations is the world, was different than any of her other missions. This time, she could put her medical training to work. I wanted to use my advanced skills to perform anesthesia for the life-changing surgeries Mercy Ships volunteers perform, says Brittany, who has worked at Mayo Clinic for seven years.
