11-year-old year old tickles his little sister — and discovers she has cancer

The Huffington Post UK reported that 11-year-old Aaron East from Essex, England, was tickling his 7-year-old sister Amy East when he noticed a lump on her neck.“I was really guilty at first because I didn’t understand much of what I found,” Aaron told The Huffington Post UK. “I didn’t know what to do at first but then I realized I needed to let a responsible adult know so I ran to (my mommy) and I’m happy I did.”

Aaron’s discovery led doctors to diagnose Amy with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare cancer that affects fewer than 60 children in the UK, early.

Amy underwent surgery to remove part of the growth and is now undergoing chemotherapy.

According to the family’s GoFundMe page, Amy is set to undergo proton beam therapy, a form of radiotherapy that is only available in the United States.

    Now he earned the right to tickle her whenever and however he wants… The first occasion will be her safe and sound return home.
    Brothers, tickle your little sisters and if they protest tell them “It might someday save your life!”
