About

 

 



The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) is a registered charity dedicated to providing support to people affected by retinoblastoma (Rb). 

We:
• Offer support to anyone affected by Rb from diagnosis into adulthood and beyond.
• Raise awareness of Rb among healthcare professionals like GPs, health visitors and opticians, as well as the public.
• Raise funds for research into better diagnosis and treatment for children and adults affected by Rb.
• Campaign for a better service for Rb patients.
Rb is a rare cancer that affects the retina of children, mainly under the age of five, and around 50 to 60 new cases are diagnosed in the UK every year. It has one of the most successful cure rates of all childhood cancers but early diagnosis is vital to ensure the best chances of saving a child’s vision, and their life.

Last year we offered support to 100% of families following a diagnosis and throughout their child’s treatment.
We provided over 2,000 support hours to around 525 families.

If you have any questions or concerns about retinoblastoma, please email us at support@chect.org.uk
