Daily Mail reports, the first time her 1-year-old son AJ walked, sister Alex Finney (29 years old, in Bolton, England) discovered an unusual white spot in the boy’s right eye. Tests at the hospital showed that the boy had retinoblastoma – a tumor in the retina that can be seen through the pupil.
Doctors had to immediately remove one of the boy’s eyes in a three-hour operation. It is known that the patient has now been fitted with an artificial eye. According to the story, AJ had to be hospitalized for 5 days, parents were only allowed to be with their child for one hour a day due to restrictions due to the COVID-19 epidemic at that time.
Ms. Finney said it was really hard for her to accept the fact that her son could only see with one eye. Even so, the whole family feels very fortunate that AJ’s left eye is still healthy. Strangers did not notice that the boy’s left eye was an artificial eye.
“Just being able to see with one eye doesn’t seem to bother AJ, but every now and then, he gets bumped into the doorframe. AJ is left-handed, visible side. We are constantly adapting our parenting style to fit AJ’s needs. The boy was very active, now standing, walking everywhere. I love clapping and making a ruckus in the room by tossing the ball around,” said Finney.
In a message to other parents, Ms Finney said: “If someone is worried that their child has retinoblastoma, see a doctor as soon as possible but don’t panic. There are a lot of different treatments.”
