The Day That Changed My Life - Retinoblastoma

Retinoblastoma is a cancerous tumor of the eye. Many people are unaware of the disease as most cancers are at the forefront in terms of raising awareness to fight the disease.

In honor of Retinoblastoma Awareness week, we focus on this rare cancer that affects the retina and is commonly diagnosed in children by ages 1-2. In the Off Broadway Play, The Day That Changed My Life shared the journey of parents whose child was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma. We will be focusing on the disease in depth as we want to be a part of bringing awareness to the disease. Although it is a rare form of cancer, for the parent whose child has the disease, it becomes an added challenge that at times can be painful to think of the child's future and what lies ahead.
