Fifteen years ago, Mary was diagnosed with a tumor on the right frontal lobe of her brain, a kind of cancer with a survival rate of little more than two years.

She underwent treatment at UCH, and remains "one of only a handful" of patients in the country to have beaten the survival odds for so long.

Also appearing is Kevin O. Lillehei, MD, neurosurgeon at University of Colorado Hospital.

The spot was produced in collaboration with KMGH Channel 7 in Denver.
