Few people remember mosquito bites with joy or gratitude. However, sometimes a wound left by an insect can save a person’s life by indicating the presence of a dangerous disease.

In August last year, a married couple from the UK returned from a week-long vacation in Ibiza, where she went to rest with her little daughter Connie.

Upon returning, the girl's mother, 25-year-old Hayley Williams, noticed a mosquito bite on her leg, but did not attach any importance to this, believing that soon there would be no trace of a small wound. As it turned out, her expectations were not met.
“We had a wonderful time on holiday in Ibiza, and our impressions could not be overshadowed by a small mosquito bite,” recalls Haley. “But the next morning, the wound turned black, and we decided to show Connie to the doctor.”

According to Williams, she expected that antihistamines would be discharged to the child at the hospital, but the blackened bite alerted the doctors, so they sent the little patient to take a blood test.The results showed that the girl had a low level of hemoglobin (anemia) and prompted doctors to conduct additional bone marrow research, which helped them to make a terrible diagnosis: leukemia (a malignant disease of the circulatory system).

“As soon as we heard from specialists the words“ your daughter has cancer, ”our world collapsed. “You never expect this to happen to your child,” Hayley admitted to the Mirror correspondent. - Later, the doctors explained: the wound became black due to the fact that the immune system weakened by cancer did not respond to the bite. They told us that before receiving the test results they didn’t even realize how serious it was. ”

Fortunately, the specialists diagnosed cancer in the early stages and appointed Connie a course of chemotherapy, so now she is in remission. According to the forecasts of doctors, the girl, who recently turned four years old, will be able to get rid of the diagnosis of “leukemia” in January 2016.

“It sounds strange, but the mosquito bite turned out to be a great success for us - it saved our daughter's life. We still cannot believe that we received treatment on time thanks to a small wound.If it were not for her strange color, we would never have thought to go to the hospital, because Connie looked quite healthy. I hope our tests will end successfully in 2016, ”concluded Williams.
