Rare Disease Actually Made This 7-Year-Old’s Eyeball Fall Out Of Its Socket
It goes without saying that parents experience a lot of crazy health scares while raising their kids. Sometimes, a condition comes along that's so rare, it's nearly impossible to make sense of it—but it's no less important to share.
That's why U.K. resident James Sellers deemed it necessary to share the story of his 7-year-old son, Logan, who experienced something so dreadful, it would make even the toughest parents squeamish.
Life for James Sellers and his family was quite ordinary—that is, until his twins, Logan and Francheska, turned seven. That's when Logan, left, developed a painful itch in his eye.
They didn't think much of it... until Logan's eye fell out of its socket.
After rushing to the hospital, the family learned that Logan suffered from rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that affects children. A tumor had formed behind the boy's eye, forcing it completely out of its socket.
The cancer also completely affected Logan's mood. James said that, almost every night, Logan would wake up “sweating, screaming, and crying for no apparent reason.” He frequently became sick, lost his appetite and his willingness to play, and often lashed out at his father by punching and smacking him.
