- A mom took a photo of her son when he was three months old.
- She noticed something in his eye that helped doctors discover a rare form of eye cancer.
While there are plenty of stories about the Apple Watch helping to save someone's life, this latest story is actually about the iPhone.
As reported by Fox News, Josie Rock, a 41-year-old parent of three from Gainesville, Georgia, was taking photos of her three-month-old son Asher. Rock then noticed something off about one of the photos.
The photo led Rock to get Asher tested and, sure enough, he was diagnosed with grade D retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. Thankfully, the cancer was caught early and Asher went through treatment successfully.
According to the report, Asher has gone through 54 exams to date and continues to be treated to ensure that the cancer does not return.
