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.

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.
As the year draws to an end, it’s a time when we like to look back and reflect on what we’ve achieved, thanks to your absolutely amazing support.
Since 1997, the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust has funded more than 20 research projects, totalling almost £700k. Find out more about CHECT research.
