Richard Sorensen

St. Petersburg, Fla.

Specialty Pharmacy

Richard takes a specialty drug to treat a form of leukemia. His UnitedHealthcare pharmaceutical nurse provides guidance, watches over his care, and provides peace of mind.


Richard was recently hospitalized for a heart condition that requried surgery. Since the surgery Richard has been going to cardiac rehab three days a week and says he is feeling the best he has felt in three years, his Acute Myelogenous Leukemia is in remission, he still works full time and enjoys going out on his new boat.

Both of his kids are doing great, Trae has two fishing boats and Shelby has been working for her dad part time while she goes to school.

"These little bumps in the road – you'll get through them, just stay positive and keep moving forward."
