Nurse Spots Cancer from Facebook Posting

Out of the UK comes a story about about Nicola Sharp, a school nurse who was browsing her friend's Facebook profile.  Her friend, Michele Freeman, had posted a flash photo of her little girl, Grace on her profile page.  When Nicola saw the picture of Grace, she noticed that the little girl's eyes reflected red in only one of her pupils.  The other pupil reflected white.  As a nurse, Nicola knew that this could indicate the presence of a tumor. 

Nicola immediately contacted the little girl's mother who brought her to to the doctor for assessment.  It was determined that she had retinoblastoma and there were two tumors behind her left eye.  Although little Grace lost the sight in her eye, the quick diagnosis and treatment made it much more likely that she would not lose her life to the disease.  As Grace's 37 year old mother put it:
"There is no doubt in my mind that Nicola saved Grace's life.  There were no signs she had any problems and we never would have known without her looking at the picture.
Grace.  Pure and simple.
