Aggie Morgan, 74, of Kasota, has long wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride. She was diagnosed with multiple myeloma about a decade ago and recently transitioned to hospice care. Her longtime oncology nurse, Kerry Olson, set up a virtual reality hot air balloon ride for her during a recent visit to Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato. Olson's daughter, Klaire, 13, downloaded the simulation on her virtual reality headset and brought it in for Aggie to use.
