World Eye Cancer Hope

We build locally sustainable programs that bring life and sight saving care to children with eye cancer around the world.

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    Retinoblastoma (Rb) is an aggressive but highly curable eye cancer that usually develops before 3 years of age. 7,000 babies and young children die every year due to poor awareness and limited access to specialist care. Most children who survive lose at least one eye and many children whose eyes are saved have severe or complete loss of vision that is irreversible.

    Opportunities to reverse this tragedy are great!

    Every child deserves the best opportunities to overcome cancer, and to have a good quality of life when cure is not possible. We bring those opportunities to children around the world by

    • Educating the public and primary health workers about retinoblastoma to achieve early diagnosis and rapid referral to specialist care;

    • Empowering the medical community to deliver sustainable high quality evidence-based care that gives each child the best possible opportunities;

    • Enabling family support programs that reduce practical, emotional, financial and social burdens and improve access essential care.

    We encourage the international retinoblastoma community, imaging industry, health care policymakers, researchers and global citizens to help us ensure that the rights of every child with retinoblastoma are protected, and that no child suffers needlessly because of this highly curable cancer.
