Life After Retinoblastoma – An Inspiring Story

At Sydney Ophthalmic Specialists, we love hearing positive stories about people with eye conditions. Next year we hope to bring you the stories of some of our own patients with visual impairment who have gone on to achieve great things. In the meantime, here is an inspiring story about a 43 year old woman who had one eye enucleated (removed) as a baby at 10 weeks of age due to a childhood eye cancer called Retinoblastoma. Alison’s journey is brought to you by the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust, which is a UK based charity that aims to educate and raise awareness of retinoblastoma and support those with retinoblastoma. They have some terrific resources on their website. Please follow the second link to access their homepage.
