Retinoblastoma is highly treatable but early diagnosis is vital. The two main symptoms are a white glow and a squint. If your child has these, don’t ignore them.
The white glow
Seeing a white glow in the eye of a child in a photograph or in certain lighting can be really worrying. Find out what causes white eye and what to do if you see it.
We provide ongoing support and information to anyone affected by retinoblastoma. If you need to talk, get in touch with one of our support workers today.
Supporting families affected by retinoblastoma
The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) is the only UK charity solely dedicated to helping families and individuals affected by retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. We provide support, raise awareness and fund research into prevention and treatment.
The cancellation of the London Marathon back in March has not stopped our fundraisers from doing their bit for CHECT.
A squint is actually the second most common symptom.
When Stacey Declerk was given a camera for Christmas, she had no idea it would lead to the discovery that her son Brody had eye cancer. She shares her story:
Mum Pippa tells us about her daughter’s chemo treatment and retinoblastoma journey.
Mum Charlie tells us about her son’s retinoblastoma journey including how his eye was removed (enucleated) to save his life.
Mum Michelle tells us about her son’s retinoblastoma journey – including his chemotherapy treatment.
