EDMOND, OK -- A routine trip to the dentist ending up being much more for 11-year-old Journee Woodard. When the hygeniest was cleaning Woodard's teeth, she noticed something about her patient's eyes.

“She said you know, Journee’s eyes look yellow,” said Dr. Michael Chandler, Journee’s dentist . “She asked me to take a look, I took a look and said that does look abnormal.”

Dr. Chandler informed Journee’s mom, who took her to a doctor. Little did they know she’d be fighting for her life just days later.
