Nicky Adkins | Throat Cancer Survivor

Nicky Adkins
“Cancer changed the way I view life. My outlook on life became more positive than it was before I was diagnosed. Now that I have survived cancer, I’m not taking anything for granted.

One moment that sticks out to me most about my treatment at the Cancer Institute was when Dr. Suen told me I had stage 4 throat cancer. The first thing he said to me was, ‘This is something we can treat,’ and that was all I needed to hear. His words really gave me hope.

I am lucky to have an amazing family who has always been there to help me. My wife and three sons have been amazing, and I am thankful for every day with them.”
