Concerned for Rowan, Robb wasted no time in contacting Santos. “I didn’t want to scare her,” she admitted. “But then I weighed out the options. If something wasn’t wrong, then no real harm was done. If something was wrong, I really had no option, so obviously I had to tell her.”
Following her contact with Robb, Santos made an urgent appointment with her doctor. The very next day Rowan went to see an ophthalmologist. Weeks of tests followed, until experts finally confirmed the child did indeed have a tumor on her retina.
