Retinoblastoma is a cancer of the eye. It is a relatively rare cancer, but it accounts for approximately 5% of blindness in children.
Most cases of Retinoblastoma occur in children under the age of five, although it can affect children of any age.
Retinoblastoma occurs in the retina, which is the light-sensitive lining of the eye and there are two forms:
new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in people aged 0–24
cases of leukaemia will be the most commonly diagnosed
children & adolescents die from cancer every week
Together we can change the statistics and
outsmart cancer for good
