Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - The initial tests in 2017 showed that Noah had very little sight in his left eye.

Photograph of a four-year-old boy captured a white spot in his pupil which turned out to be a rare type of eye cancer.    

Noah, from Eastbourne, England, was diagnosed with retinoblastoma that usually affects children under five. The little boy underwent six cycles of chemotherapy but eventually had his eye removed after the tumor did not respond to treatment.

After a photograph detected cancer in Noah's eye, his parents, Laila Gaudry and Ollie Blanks, are now teaming up with Childhood Eye Cancer Trust to warn other parents to regularly take photos of their children with the flash on. "We were horrified when one of our photographs showed the white reflection. The first thing that Google came up with was retinoblastoma," Laila was quoted as saying in Daily Mail.

The initial tests in 2017 showed that Noah had very little sight in his left eye. "Three days later we saw a specialist eye doctor and the word retinoblastoma was finally mentioned. We looked at each other as we fell apart," Laila added.

However, when chemotherapy did not work Noah's eye had to be removed and was fitted with a temporary prosthetic later. "Noah is now six years old and doing really well. His big brother Jake is so supportive and they're inseparable - best friends and partners in crime," his mother said.
