It was a typical day at Starbucks for barista Nicole McNeil. So, when the door opened, and the familiar face of Vince Villano walked into the coffee house, she wasn’t surprised. But when he placed his usual order, Nicole couldn’t help but feel as though something was wrong.

Of course, she didn’t want to cross a line with the customer by asking personal questions. But after thinking it over, Nicole asked a question that very well might have saved the man’s life.
