INDIA IS FIGHTING RETINOBLASTOMA AND WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
With World RB Awareness Week from May 13th, the Fight RB India group has geared itself up.
Practically 100% children survive this cancer in USA. But in our country due to late detection and diagnosis, children often present with very advanced metastatic disease and distressfully bulging protruding eyes which means the eye needs to be taken out (enucleated), the child loses vision permanently and there are low chances of survival.
Timely diagnosis and proper treatment is the key. In a unique stakeholder initiative facilitated by Cankids - FIGHT RB INDIA – 42 RB Centers across the country, specialists in the field of ophthalmology/ocular oncology, pediatric oncology, pathology and radiology, RB survivors and parents, CanKids and other NGOs, have joined together to fight against RB in young children – to Save Life, Save Vision and Save Eyes.
Vision 2020 is the roadmap to get there, authored by Internationally renowned ocular oncologist Dr Santosh Honavar, at the behest of the NGO under its Sajeev-Cankids Awareness, Advocacy and Patient Support project for Retinoblastoma. READ MORE..
