From Sky News A young girl's life has been saved after her parents spotted an abnormality in a photograph of her. In remission: Sophie Ripley Tracey and David Ripley were admiring a picture taken at a wedding of their daughter Sophie when they noticed their daughter's eyes were different colours. The left eye appeared a lot darker than the right. That prompted them to take Sophie to a doctor where it emerged the youngster had a life-threatening tumour in her left eye and cancer cells in her right eye. "We noticed Sophie's right eye was blue, like her sister's, and the other black," mum Tracey told the Daily Mirror. "You get red eye in pictures but this was so strange I took her to the GP to have a look. "They put a light in her eye and I could tell by the doctor that something was wrong." Sophie had to have her left eye removed - but the cancer is in now remission thanks to chemotherapy. The couple, of Sheffield, are now campaigning to raise awareness of the need for a speedy diagnosis. Dad David said: "We were lucky it was picked up. We are glad to help others."
