The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust is committed to raising awareness of retinoblastoma (Rb), a rare cancer generally affecting children under the age of six.

We are happy to work with all forms of media in order to raise awareness. It is our hope that by having more information available to the public people will be confident enough to get symptoms checked by their doctor.
