Retinoblastoma - Eye Cancer in Babies & Children - Do you know how to spot it?

By
Real Estate Agent with Granville, Newark, Heath, Buckeye Lake & all of Central Ohio

If you've never heard of Retinoblastoma, please visit this facebook page that explains everything much better than I could:

http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Retinoblastoma-Awareness/137564446263237?sk=info

Look at the photos on this page and then pay attention to the photos of children in your life and spread the word to others. These tumors show up in photos as a white reflection where you might normally see red-eye. In children with one healthy eye, the photo might show one red-eye and one white reflection. If caught early, the eye(s) can be saved. If ignored, the cancer can spread. Get the word out!

My gosh, Tracie - I had no idea that simply looking at the eye reflection in a picture could be so profoundly important.  Simply amazing - and so important for parents to know!

Those photos are heartbreaking!  The grandson of a guy I used to work with some years ago had this in both eyes.  Thankfully, he is doing well now.

Hi Ann, glad to hear your friends grandson is doing well now.  The baby on the profile picture of that facebook page is the son of someone who went to the same high school as my daughter.  I had never heard of it before.

Hi Tracie,  I have never heard of this either.  Thank you for bringing it to my attention.  It is truly heartbreaking.
