Initially she brushed it off as something serious, not until a viral story on Facebook caught her eyes. The article signified that a white glow in someone eyes could signal cancer. With her motherly instinct, she took a photo of her boy.
That white glow…
Julia’s worry came true. A visit to the doctor revealed that Avery had retinoblastoma and said that cancerous tumors was covering 75 percent of his eye.
