It is so easy to disparage the times in which we live, yet we have so very much to be thankful for.
Especially seven year old Becky Prosser, who was born with a tiny facial birthmark which, within six weeks, had developed into an invasive haemagioma growth so bad that it was about to make her go blind and was making it impossible for her to feed.
After 18 months of intensive laser and drug treatment, Becky's sight was saved and the disfiguring tumour completely removed.

Even thirty years ago, this would have - at the very least- cost this child her sight.
