Raising awareness among the general public and medical professionals that children can get cancer in their eyes and to make the signs and symptoms of retinoblastoma (Rb) known has long since been a goal of our charity. It is our aim that every parent in the UK knows about retinoblastoma (Rb) and its signs and symptoms but we cannot do this alone.
Families with experience of retinoblastoma can help the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) in this mission on a regular basis by sharing their stories with the media, by backing our awareness campaigns and hosting local events to raise awareness of Rb. In the past volunteers have given interviews, sought newspaper, TV and radio coverage and continue to do great work in local communities and wider.
Could you raise awareness for us? We need help distributing our "I Spy" posters to Early Years groups, attending local community events, or setting up a stand in local shopping centre. If you can help us with any of these then call Julie on 020 7377 5578 or email
