About this cause

About our cause

Fundraising for 'Dominique's Dream'. You may have read about this in one of many newspapers and magazines. Dominique is a local child from Hexham, Northumberland and is now 18 months old. In November last year Dominique was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma - a rapidly forming cancer that develops in the immature cells of the retina, the light detecting tissue of the eye. She has this in both eyes and the cancer is travelling up her optic nerve into her brain.. This has caused her left eye having to be removed and replaced with a false eye. She is receiving regular laser eye treatment to save the sight in her right eye and is receiving Chemotherapy at ward 4 at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary. This is the Paediatric Oncology and Teenage Cancer Trust unit and is excellently staffed by specialist nurses to provide intensive care and treatment for children and young people between birth and 19 years of age with all forms of cancer. They also work extremely closely with childrens families and carers to help them deal with and manage their illness. We have arrange to do a charity night at Hexham torch centre on August 2014. In the meantime, we are holding various fundraising events in the local area to make the public more aware of Retinoblastoma and to give something back to the RVI ward 4, this is to help other children in Dominique's situation and to raise awareness of how to detect the disease.
