My 9 month old grandson was diagnosed a week ago with retinoblastoma (cancer of the eye).  We are so shocked and saddened. You never would have known anything was wrong, except for a strange glow in his eye in a certain light.  Luckily this type of cancer is 95% treatable, but the bad thing is he will have to do chemo for 6 mos, every 3 weeks, and there is a good chance he will lose his eye.  :(  He just had his first treatment and in a couple of weeks they will look at the tumor to see if it has shrunk enough.  But there is only a 1% chance of saving his eye.  Not good.  :(  Obviously, if taking his eye saves his life, then so be it.  But please pray for the best and for a miracle.  and pray for him to remain strong through the chemo.  Poor little guy is such a trooper and I love him so much.  I can't believe this is happening.
