The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) is a UK wide charity for families and individuals affected by retinoblastoma. We offer support and information, fund research and raise public awareness of this rare cancer.

Retinoblastoma is a cancer of the eye that develops in children, typically under five years old. The survival rate for children affected is increasingly good. However many children will have an eye removed as part of their treatment and some both eyes.

The work of The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust follows its three aims:
  • Support:
    • Support through diagnosis and treatment
    • Information
    • Contact with other families
    • Annual family day
    • Regular newsletter
    • Ongoing support as needed
  • Funding Research
  • Raising Awareness With health professionals and the general public
