Q: Can I volunteer to help new patients get through treatment?
A: The Eye Cancer Foundation continues to develop an extensive patient-to-patient support network.
The Patient-to-Patient Network is made up of patients, family members, and friends who can deal with the issues involved in diagnosis, treatment, and living with radiation macular degeneration and ocular tumors.
If you would like to volunteer to speak with someone who is facing the problem you have overcome, or if you need to speak with someone who has confronted your eye problem, please join our contact list by calling 212-832-7297.

Q: What is The Eye Cancer Foundation?
A: The Eye Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization that provides eye cancer-related news, treatment information for patients, their families, physicians, and other health-care providers. It has established family and patient support programs to ease emotional stress and real-life adjustment issues related to the severe forms of these conditions. The Foundation strives to empower patients to find the resources to improve their lives.
The Eye Cancer Foundation funds and directs research to find cures for patients with ocular tumors and related eye diseases. It also coordinates national and international registries to evaluate new methods of diagnosis and treatment. Most recently we have added an initiative to make sure there is at least one eye cancer specialist in every country around the world. For that, and our other initiatives, we need your help!
