Patient Stories


Featuring: Debbie Harris, a Stage 4 lung cancer patient.

"It started with a headache that was causing quite a bit of discomfort and pressure. At one point when I went to visit an aunt in the hospital, I was in quite a bit of pain when I tried to move my head. So I went to the hospital to get it checked out. It was thought I had a pinched nerve in my neck, so they sent me for a CT scan. When the doctor came back, she was white as a ghost, and said, I don't know how to tell you this, but you have a tumour in your brain. I was hysterical and crying with my husband from the news. We were in shock. All this while I was in excruciating pain from the headache and being denied any pain relief for a number of hours till I was eventually made comfortable."
