Retinoblastoma is an aggressive childhood eye cancer
that kills more than 7,000 youngsters every year.
A white glow in a child's eye could be a sign of cancer.
The most common early sign of retinoblastoma is a white glow in the child's eye. This cancer is  easy to diagnose, and treatment is very effective when tumours are found early.

In developed countries, survival is above 96%, but 95% of children experience moderate to severe vision loss or complete blindness.

Suffering is highest in developing countries where most affected children live and few survive.

Increasing access to specialist care will bring the promise of life and sight to every child.  This is the mission of Daisy's Eye Cancer Fund.  We:

• Educate about retinoblastoma to achieve early
   diagnosis and rapid referral to specialist care;

• Empower medical teams to deliver sustainable
   high quality evidence-based care

• Enable family support programs that reduce
   burdens and improve access to essential care
