Retinoblastoma campaign - German version Retinoblastoma is rare childhood cancer. It is highly curable when diagnosed and treated early. However, there are less than 40 % retinoblastoma survivors in several developing countries, among whom there is a high rate of partially sighted people due to late diagnosis and a lack of access to specialized care. INCTR works in partnership with TUCCA - an NGO for poor children and adolescents with cancer in Brazil - to run awareness campaigns directed towards both health care professionals and the public with the goal of improving early diagnosis of this disease. TUCCA is closely associated with the Brazilian Branch of INCTR. This year, the AMCC - INCTR French Branch- is aiming to launch a similar program in Sudan, Morocco, Mali, Congo Brazzaville, and DRC which will also facilitate access to treatment and support the rehabilitation of cured children.

Retinoblastoma "Cancer of the Eye" Warriors Retinoblastoma is curable if caught early enough. However, 87% of the children stricken with this disease worldwide die, mostly in developing countries. In developed countries, 97% of those who do live have moderate to severe visual impairment. When Retinoblastoma is present in one eye, it is known as unilateral Retinoblastoma. When in both eyes, it's known at Bilateral Retinoblastoma. To learn more about Retinoblastoma visit: Rachel: Julie-Layton: Karli: Bekah: Music: Fix You - Coldplay NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED
ORBIS EyeReport - Dr. Brian Marr & Retinoblastoma in Jakarta For the first time, the ORBIS Flying Eye Hospital facilitated an ocular oncology clinic during its program in Jakarta, Indonesia. Led by Dr. Brian Marr from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, ORBIS held a week-long skills exchange program to address retinoblastoma - a cancer that develops in the retina of the eye - and orbital melanomas. Dr. Marr spent the week consulting on cases seen by the local doctors, and in one case, was able to perform surgery on a two-year-old little girl named Azzara. Through Jakarta's aggressive campaign to address retinoblastoma and the importance of early detection, children like Azzara are seen in time to give them a fighting chance at not only sight, but at life. Dr. Marr was able to show the local doctors how to approach cases such as Azzara where traditional treatment with chemotherapy must be complimented with laser surgery as well. Working side-by-side with the local doctors, Dr. Marr was able to share best practices when dealing with a case such as Azarra and with the limited technology and tools available in country. produced by: Perry Athanason/ORBIS International

Baby Easton - Please pray for Baby Easton, at 5wks diagnosed with retinoblastoma From the family: December 20th, beautiful Easton was born to proud parents, Kaelyn and Brec, and excited little brother Rylan. On January 31st, Easton was diagnosed with retinoblastoma and sent to St. Judes Hospital in Tenessee. He underwent exploratory surgery this morning (Feb. 2nd). The Drs were going to freeze the tumor behind his left eye if it was feesible, however, they found he has another smaller tumor behind his right eye. He is having a port-o-cath inserted to begin chemotherapy Monday and tests done to see if cancer has spread anywhere. This will be an emotional and wearing journey for this family who has already endured so much in their past. We, their friends who adore them, would like to ask everyone to send prayers and love to them to help give them encouragement and strength thru this process. We have made mom and dad, aunts, grandparents and great-grandparents aministrators on here. If they choose to post they will and if not, then we will keep their privacy out of respect. As we are updated...so will you be. Please pray....Thank you so much in advance.

Joli's Retinoblastoma Journey Joli was diagnosed with Stage V retinoblastoma just after her 2nd birthday. She had her right eye enucleated, 6 months of chemotherapy, a prosthetic created, and multiple exams under anesthesia (EUAs). It's nearly impossible to sum up a child's journey with cancer in less than 10 minutes, so this is simply a glimpse into the experience.She's doing well now. This video was created to support parents (or friends) who may have a child with Rb and are looking for a little bit of information. You can also check out for more information!

Please visit her sites and pray for her Retinoblastoma (reh-tin-oh-blast-oma) is a childhood cancer arising from immature retinal cells in one or both eyes and can strike from the time a child is in the womb up to 5 years of age. This cancer is curable if caught early enough. However, 87% of the children stricken with this disease worldwide die, mostly in developing countries. In developed countries, 97% of those who do live have moderate to severe visual impairment. Retinoblastoma is a relatively uncommon tumor of childhood that accounts for about 3% of the cancers in children under the age of 15. The tumors originate in the retina, the light sensitive layer of the eye, which enables the eye to see. When the tumors are present in one eye, it is referred to as unilateral retinoblastoma, and when it occurs in both eyes it is referred to as bilateral retinoblastoma. 60% of the cases involve only one eye (unilateral); the rest affect both eyes (bilateral). 90% of retinoblastoma patients have no family history of the disease and only 10% of newly diagnosed patients have other family members with retinoblastoma. Early diagnosis and intervention is critical to the successful treatment of this disease.

Retinoblastoma childhood eye cancer Retinoblastoma is the leading cause of malignant eye cancer in children. In India, 1500 children are diagnosed with retinoblastoma every year. Timely treatment can help save over 90% of these children, and save vision in 75% of cases. LV Prasad Eye Institute is well-equipped with world-class doctors and facilities to successfully treat retinoblastoma eye cancers. But it is important for parents and school teachers to be aware. spot the symptoms, and seek early diagnosis and treatment.
Intra-arterial Chemotherapy for Retinoblastoma A collaborative effort of the Jefferson Hospital for Neurosciences and Wills Eye Institute to treat young children with a rare cancer - retinoblastoma - by delivering chemotherapy agents directly to the tumor in the ophthalmic artery behind the affected eye. Jefferson vascular neurosurgeon Pascal Jabbour, MD, using a minimally invasive technique that involves threading a microcatheter from an artery in the child's thigh through the body into the head and then into the ophthalmic artery to inject the chemo.

TV9 - LADIES CLUB : "RETINOBLASTOMA" : WHITE EYE CANCER IN KIDS TV9 - LADIES CLUB : "RETINOBLASTOMA"- "WHITE EYE" CANCER IN KIDS.........! Retinoblastoma (Rb) is a rapidly developing cancer that develops in the cells of retina, the light detecting tissue of the eye. In the developed world, Rb has one of the best cure rates of all childhood cancers (95-98%), with more than nine out of every ten sufferers surviving into adulthood.In children with the heritable genetic form of retinoblastoma there is a mutation on chromosome 13, called the RB1 gene.The genetic codes found in chromosomes control the way in which cells grow and develop within the body. If a portion of the code is missing or altered (mutation) a cancer may develop. The defective RB1 gene can be inherited from either parent; in some children, however, the mutation occurs in the early stages of fetal development. It is unknown what causes the gene abnormality; it is most likely to be a random mistake during the copy process which occurs when a cell divides. Inherited forms of retinoblastomas are more likely to be bilateral; in addition, they may be associated with pinealoblastoma (also known as trilateral retinoblastoma) with a dismal outcome. The genetic codes found in chromosomes control the way in which cells grow and develop within the body. Several methods have been developed to detect the RB1 gene mutations. Attempts to correlate gene mutatations to the stage at presentation have not shown convincing evidence of a correlation.The most common and obvious ...
