Faye Archer, 16, was applying her new mascara when she suffered from an eye infection. When she underwent tests for the infection, the doctors found that she was suffering from Hodgkin's lymphoma, cancer of the lymph nodes.

After eight weeks of chemotherapy, Faye was finally declared free of cancer. Both Faye and her mother admitted that they would have had no idea that she was suffering from the cancer until it was too late.

"If I hadn't got the eye infection I would never have had the tests and the cancer may not have been found in time", she said.
