Doocy and Kathy had planned a relaxing and much-needed trip to Florida, and to prepare for the sunshine state Kathy suggested she buy a new pair of shades about five years ago. They visited their eye doctor in New Jersey, where he discovered a freckle on the back of Kathy’s eye. The doctor reassured them that it was probably nothing to worry about, and told Kathy to come back in three months to have it checked out again. Three months passed, and Doocy and Kathy were right back at the eye doctor. However, this time Kathy was told to visit a retinal specialist.
The doctor examined the back of Kathy’s eyes. However, their trip wasn’t over. The specialist told them they should travel to Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia to get some tests done. While waiting for the results, both Doocy and Kathy stayed positive and expected everything to be OK. They didn’t expect to hear the news the doctor shared.
“It took all day, [the doctor] comes in and she said, ‘Kathy, you’ve got cancer, but I’m going to save your life,’” says an emotional Doocy. “Anytime you hear, ‘you’ve got cancer,’ you just stop breathing,” Kathy said.
