    A couple of months back, Illinois mom Julie Fitzgerald began noticing there seemed to be something in the back of her 2-year-old son Avery's eye, in a certain light.

    So she turned to an Internet search, and to her dismay found a story about a woman whose 'red eye' in a family photo strangely turned out white. Cancer had caused the effect. With a sinking heart, Julie took a cell photo of Avery.

    The result showed something was obviously wrong. Doctors discovered the little boy has retinoblastoma with 'multiple, multiple tumors' and left much longer, the cancer could have spread to his blood and brain.

    Avery's eye had to be removed and he'll have to have a prosthetic, but the family says the cancer seems to have been caught in time.
