If it weren”t for the flash of a camera, Taylor Treadwell”s parents likely would not have detected the young boy”s eye cancer in time to save his life. Luckily, they were able to spot an odd glow in Taylor”s eye that looked like more than just a flaw in the photography. When they got Taylor to the hospital, it was discovered that he had one large tumor in his right eye and three smaller tumors in his left from retinoblastoma.
Thankfully, after four months of chemotherapy, Taylor”s cancer was in remission. However, the cancer unfortunately did irreparable damage to his right eye. Take a look at how a simple picture saved his life.
