My husband had to have a tumor removed from his intestine. We had no idea it was there until he experienced terrible cramps the weekend before. Once Dr. M opened him up, he discovered that it was cancer and had spread to the liver and lungs. He had then the task of having to let us know my husband at age 47 has 1-5 years of life left. We have started our journey of beating this beast with Dr. Minnick on our side. We could not of asked for a more knowledgable & compassionate dr to be in this with
