Retinablastoma is a rare tumor of the retina that usually affects small children. At the age of six, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Retinablastoma. After being told I needed immediate surgery that could possible leave me brain dead or blind, I had my eye removed and was forced to wear a prosthesis that impacted my childhood years. You can only imagine the questions, criticism, and bullying I endured. But over forty years later, I am alive and well and have written a book for children facing the disease.
Cross Eyed empowers and teaches children diagnosed with cancer how to use their childlike faith in order to beat the disease, deal with bullies, and see themselves as healed, healthy adults.
