Nick, who lives with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Axonal Neuropathy, lands his first job at Big W

Nick lives with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Axonal Neuropathy, which has resulted in severe mobility issues and the use of a wheelchair. He refuses to let his illness dictate his life, waking up every day with a positive attitude and with a smile from ear to ear, Nick has secured his first job at Big W! He says that having a job means he feels more independent, “everyone will say the obvious, having a job means money coming in, and you can’t live without money!
