Thanks to all the people who turned out for our October 2010 Retinoblastoma New England get together. It was a beautiful day for apple picking, going through the corn maze, and a trip to the country store. It’s always such a treat to see old friends and new friends, and to see the kids have such a wonderful time together!


I always believe that encounters happen for a reason. I found myself a few dollars short of being able to go into the Corn Maze with the family, and was a little disappointed. I happened to strike up a conversation with a woman who was waiting for her own kids to finish the corn maze, and it turns out she is a photographer specializing in photographing infants and toddlers! We had a really extensive conversation about retinoblastoma, leukoria, and the chances of actually detecting it “by accident” via a photograph. Even this woman had said, “We were meant to meet today.”


I hope that she is one more angel in this fight for early detection of retinoblastoma, especially given what she does for a living.


As always, if you would like to join us for our next RbNE get together, please leave a comment here and one of our RbNE parents will get back to you!
