Tiny light Chloe went to the doctor when she was 2 years old for what her
parents thought was a simple lazy eye. To their dismay she was immediately
transferred to Sick Kids Hospital. It turned out she had cancer in both
eyes. Within a few days, she had her left eye removed, but luckily the
doctors were able to save her right eye. Though she had to undergo chemo
and other treatments, most of the time no one would have known she was sick
because she always stayed strong and had a smile on her face.
Like most little girls, Chloe enjoys singing, dancing and swimming. Though
she still needs frequent monitoring, she has now been cancer free for three
years. After the Children’s Wish Foundation granted Chloe’s wish to go to
Disneyland, she and her have family participated in the Wishmaker walk
every year to help raise money to fund other children’s wishes.
Nothing holds this Tiny Light back. Despite having only one eye, she does
all the activities any five year old would, including jumping on the
trampoline and even gymnastics. She has adjusted well to having one eye,
and even cleans her prosthetic eye by herself. Chloe’s mother says her
daughter is her hero, and a true inspiration to everyone.
