AACR 21.2A1 states that titles don't change if the only changes is in a
representation of a word (e.g., singular vs. plural).  There was also a
"Title varies slightly." note added on April 10th.

Since the change is in the 2nd word, I might be tempted to provide an
added entry for the variant (especially since anyone doing a title search
on the variant will probably not retrieve as the variant is in the 2nd
word).  We don't hold the title, so I feel uncomfortable making the change
without seeing it.  Are there any CONSER libraries out there willing to
examine and provide an added entry?   --Steve

Even though the change occurs in the first five words, changes in words
from singular to plural (and vice versa) do not warrant new records
(AACR2r 21.2A1 a). Clearly an added entry is needed, but it is understandable
that this was missed.

  AACR2 21.2A1 makes an exception for singular vs. plural forms of the
same word; this would not be a title change.  I'd add a note/tracing:
246:1 :<subfield> i Issues for 1997 [or whatever the date is]-    have
title: <subfield> a Illness, crisis and loss
