Retinoblastoma surgery

On August 6th my 3 month old was diagnosed with retinoblastoma ( cancer of the eye ). August 9th she was admitted to CHLA to treat this whether it was with chemo or surgery. On August 10th the doctor did a test on her, at the end of the test he pulled me into a room to talk about what he saw and what our options were at that point. He told me he wouldn't be able to save her right eye no matter what & her left eye has three tumors. I broke down as any parent would. Her best option for her right eye was for him to remove it and put a fake eye in later. For her left eye she has to get chemotherapy for 6-8 months. This all happened within a few days I have to stop working to care for her more, I had two jobs & was going to start school soon. Please keep my baby in your prayers so she can overcome this
