Andrew Harris, 4, flaps his cotton-stuffed pterodactyl wings in his living room Thursday, Feb.19, 2015 in McHenry, two days after having his eye removed due to Retinoblastoma. Knowing why he was going in for surgery, Harris wore these wings when he went in to see his doctor. Retinoblastoma is an eye cancer that begins in the retina. Harris' mother Erin was running for McHenry City Council when she received the news that her 4-year-old son had eye cancer, she will not take the office to focus on caring for her son.
