After the Glow is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization that raises awareness for Retinoblastoma and funding for families receiving treatment locally at Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia (CHOP).
After the Glow is a 501c3 volunteer nonprofit that consists of a community of friends, family, and corporate sponsors that have come together to help raise funds to fight Retinoblastoma. Our organization was inspired by Liam, who was diagnosed at his 6-month check-up with bi-lateral (both eyes) Retinoblastoma.
Retinoblastoma is a pediatric cancer of the Retina. Each year doctors diagnose more than 5000 cases of Retinoblastoma, making it the most common eye cancer in young children. Awareness is key for Retinoblastoma, as many doctors fail to recognize and screen for Retinoblastoma during early appointments, which can lead to lower outcome rates for patients. After the Glow is dedicated to raising awareness, funding and support for families battling Retinoblastoma and other childhood cancers. Treatments can last for years and include monthly exams under anesthesia, MRI, chemotherapy, laser and Cryotherapy.
