SEATTLE - A mom's sixth sense and a doctors exam discovered that what was thought to be an infection was actually a form of leukemia.
Dr. Eric Waterman, who specializes in ear, nose, and throat, is joined by Becky Karine, a recent rhinoplasty patient to go into depth about this life-changing event.
After Becky's mother had a suspicion that something was being undiagnosed, Dr. Waterman agreed after an exam that showed Becky had unusual swelling on her cheek. After a tissue biopsy, it was discovered that Becky had acute leukemia infiltrate. After a successful treatment and recovery at the Children's hospital, Becky has decided to pursue nursing.
