On the road again – thanks to collaborative cancer care

Bill McDermott was diagnosed with diffuse large B cell lymphoma in July 2021. After beginning treatment at another hospital, his condition deteriorated significantly as it was found his cancer had spread to his brain. He couldn’t walk, barely spoke and had significant memory issues.

After being told that hospice was his only option, the family came to Mayo Clinic for a second opinion.

Thanks to the collaborative care of the team at the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center, Mr. McDermott received a unique combination of medication and had supportive services from social work, neuropsychology, neurology and ophthalmology. Today, Mr. McDermott is in remission, able to drive again and travel with his wife and friends.
