Context

Retinoblastoma is one of the most common childhood cancer tumours. It can be treated particularly well, provided it is diagnosed in time. However, the visual prognosis can be compromised depending on the location of the tumour and the impact of treatment on the retina.

 

Supported project

L'OCCITANE Manosque and the Foundation support the Institut Curie in its project to combat retinoblastoma in children. It aims to finance the purchase of a wide-angle camera in order to take photographs of the fundus of the eyes of children suffering from this pathology. These photographs make it possible to complete the ophthalmological check-up of the patient and to maintain scientific research on retinoblastoma.  These documents are extremely useful for patient follow-up and to perceive the tumor regression of the eye concerned.
