At nine months old, Nicole was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, which is a malignant tumor on the retina. This cancer rarely occurs in adults, and most often affects children ages 5 years old and under. Symptoms include eye pain, pupil constantly dilated, and red eyes. In Nicole’s case, her doctors removed her right eye in order to save her left. In addition, Nicole suffered through both chemotherapy and radiation treatments to ensure that her left eye would not be affected, though the vision in this eye is now impaired.
