Hey everyone! Retinohope Family here!
Thank you for visiting us. We promise to give our bestest for this new adventure and we hope you will be part of the empire soon enough!
Before that, let us introduce you to Retinohope, the concept.
We are an organization founded in November 2018 in Tunisia, Africa, to raise awareness about Retinoblastoma.
Retinoblastoma is a rare cancer that begins in the part of the eye called the retina. The retina is a thin layer of nerve tissue that coats the back of the eye and enables the eye to see. Most often, retinoblastoma is unilateral, meaning it occurs only in 1 eye. However, it may be present in both eyes, called bilateral. If retinoblastoma spreads, it can spread to the lymph nodes, bones, or the bone marrow, which is the soft, spongy-like material found inside large bones. Rarely, it involves the central nervous system (CNS; brain and spinal cord).
Children may be born with retinoblastoma, but the disease is rarely diagnosed at birth. Most children who begin treatment before the retinoblastoma has spread beyond the eye are cured. An important goal of treatment in children with retinoblastoma is preserving vision, a goal a lot of fighters are dreaming about and a lot more wish they had the chance to achieve.
Retinohope’s goal is not only to raise awareness about retinoblastoma but also to provide help to all the fighters out there who cannot afford a proper medical treatment and their new bestfriend, a prosthetic eye.
