Patient Stories - John Mezera
John Mezera, 79, of St. Cloud has always loved aviation. He built model planes, received his pilot’s license at age 18, served in the Air Force and had a long career as a corporate pilot. Today, he is setting his sights even higher. Not only does he and his co-pilot Teddy, his 5-year old Roosevelt Terrier devote time to youth by taking them flying to cultivate interest in aviation, but after his diagnosis of prostate cancer in 1993, John enrolled in two research studies.
By participating in research, Mezera is helping to improve the care for others with prostate cancer.
“I think research studies are beneficial for everyone. I’ve had so many friends with prostate cancer. I would definitely encourage others to participate.”
