In the Nick of time
The cover star of our 2021 issue of Inspire is Nick, he was seeing his doctor for 18-24 months with a persistent cough and back pain but it wasn’t until he coughed up blood two years later that he was sent for an x-ray. Fortunately, Nick was still diagnosed early enough for curative-intent treatment but shares his story to help raise awareness and highlight the missed opportunities so others might be referred more quickly.
