Mission Statement

Increasing access to specialist care will bring the promise of life and sight to every child with retinoblastoma. 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

Description

Retinoblastoma is the most common eye cancer in children, almost exclusively affecting babies and children under five years old. The most common early sign is a white glow in the eye, seen in flash photos and dim light.

Though highly curable, 7,000 children die every year, and 90% of children who survive have moderate, severe or complete loss of vision that is irreversible.

Daisy’s Eye Cancer Fund is dedicated to bringing life and sight saving care to all children with retinoblastoma, and to improving quality of life for their entire family during and beyond treatment.
