We all know that working with kids is as tough as it gets. They’re energetic, fast, and often don’t pay much attention to what is going on around them.
When asked how to diagnose eye cancer, the first things that come to mind are usually lots of lab work, trips to doctor’s offices, and sitting nervously in waiting rooms.
