It is very difficult for every parent to watch how their children deal with illnesses. Sarah Bowers of New Zealand had to experience something indescribable for a parent. Her infant son, Mason, was 16 weeks old when they found out that he had to undergo an eye surgery. The mom was the one who first noticed the problem with the boy’s left eye.

Of course, mothers always notice everything when it comes to their children. She noticed it by looking back at the photos she had taken of Mason by the fire. Sarah noticed a strange “golden glow” in her son’s eye, and they took him to the doctor the very next day.

Doctors informed the parents that Mason was completely blind in his left eye. There was no hope of recovering his sight anymore. But they still had to diagnose him for making sure he was safe and there would not be any other difficulties with another eye. This is why they flown up to Auckland to see an eye doctor who had dealt with cases of Retinoblastoma, which is a type of an eye cancer.

The doctor claimed that there was nothing to worry about, but it was already obvious that they couldn’t recover his sight. So, the doctor advised removing the boy’s eye, as it was the safest option for him. Little Mason had to undergo a surgery when he wasn’t even a year ago. But now he is safe and healthy!
