Cycle For Retinoblastoma

Research to  improve the care for infants with retinoblastoma requires a lot of money.

This is Sabine

This is Sabine, my oldest grandchild. She is in her final year of primary school. She loves to draw and play soccer. 

When she was just 18 months old a tumor was discovered in her left eye. In order to save her, the eye had to be removed. As a result Sabine can only see with one eye. 

Retinoblastoma is a rare form of eye cancer, which only occurs within children up to 4 years of age. Because it is a rare disease that affects only 5 infants a year on a population of 10 million, it is often discovered in a late stage, with all its consequences.

What is Retinoblastoma?

Research is currently underway to detect retinoblastoma earlier. You should think of traces in the blood, which are a sign that the Retinoblastoma is present in the body. Or even better, can show that retinoblastoma is going to develop. Early intervention may limit the damage or even prevent the occurrence.

Cycling 7000 kilometers

Retinoblastoma research is currently taking place, but on a much too small scale. Extra money can change this. That is why I, Grandpa Jan, will cycle 7000 kilometers from the Netherlands via Germany, Austria to southern Italy and back via Switzerland, France, Luxembourg and Belgium to the Netherlands.

Will You Help?

It would be great if we could work together to ensure that more research can be done on Retinoblastoma. I therefore ask you to support this charity!
