Childhood Eye Cancer Trust

The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) is dedicated to providing support to people affected by retinoblastoma (Rb). We work closely with the retinoblastoma teams at the Royal London Hospital and Birmingham Children's Hospital - the two UK centres of excellence where Rb is diagnosed and treated. Rb is rare and little known about within the wider public so we aim to provide accurate, up to date information and one-to-one support from the point of diagnosis and beyond, aiming to minimise the negative impact of the condition on the whole family.

Help Children with Eye Cancer this Christmas
 
For Jade, being told that her six month old daughter had eye cancer on Christmas Eve was devastating. But CHECT support worker Lesley was there to help the family on the day, and ever since. Your Christmas gift means that more families like Jade's can receive support at such a worrying and stressful time.
Stop Cancer Stealing the Eyes of Babies in the UK
 
For too long childhood eye cancer (Rb) has been shrouded in darkness. Children are left in the dark because some or all of their vision has been stolen. Parents and healthcare professionals are in the dark because of lack of awareness. The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) aims to raise awareness and drive down the time it takes for a child to be diagnosed with Rb in the UK. The quicker a Rb diagnosis is made the better the chances are of saving a child's sight, eyes and life. project reportread updates from the field
Help 60 UK children reach eye cancer treatment
 
Skylah is one of 60 children diagnosed in the UK each year with the aggressive eye cancer retinoblastoma. Every three weeks her family, like others supported by the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT), travel 100s of miles to only two UK specialist treatment centres to save Skylah's sight, eyes and life. Fearful for her child's life, Skylah's mother also doesn't know how she will afford this journey for the next four years. Help us give her GBP 200 to make her life with cancer a little bit easier project reportread updates from the field
