Child with skin cancer needs help

Jovita Tillett

In other news, an Orange Walk mother is asking the public for financial assistance toward medical treatment for her two year old baby boy. Jovita Tillett says that her son, Zaider Tillett, had skin cancer and upon receiving treatment, he was cured but the treatment left baby Zaider without his sight. And while the disease has stunted his growth and ability to walk, his mother says that a surgery can restore his vision.

    skin cancer treatment causing cataracts? doesn’t sound right to me. OW hospital authorities should respond.
