Meet Sloane. This year, while preparing for the holidays, our world was turned upside down. Sloane's left eye looked "funny" in certain light, so we mentioned it to our pediatrician.
He immediately referred us to a pediatric ophthalmologist, who gave us news nobody could’ve been prepared for. At 15 months old, our sweet baby was diagnosed with Bilateral Retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. She immediately underwent cancer staging, and an MRI to rule out tumors in the brain. We are so thankful that the MRI was clear, but the eye tumors were more advanced than anticipated. Her left retina is completely detached and it is unlikely that she has vision in that eye.
