Details

To raise awareness for early detection of eye cancer (retinoblastoma) in children, LVPEI is organizing its first marathon "WHITATHON" on 20 May 2018 to commemorate the World Retinoblastoma Awareness Week, that will be observed from 13-19 May 2018.

Over 8000 new cases of eye cancer are detected every year worldwide, with over 1000 new cases in India. LVPEI treats about 150 to 200 cases every year, of which 5 to 10% are in very late stages. Retinoblastoma is curable if the tumor is detected early. Early diagnosis can help save the eye through chemotherapy and focal treatment, thus saving the life, eye, and the vision of the child. Over the past decade, LVPEI has treated 1500+ patients with retinoblastoma eye cancer, a majority of them being children less than 5 years of age, off that 60% were treated at no cost to them.
