(ATLANTA) The sixteenth annual Retinoblastoma "RB Day" Picnic, coordinated by Emory Eye Center, was a day of fun and celebration for both the young patients and their families who have faced this formerly fatal childhood cancer of the eye called retinoblastoma (RB). On May 10 young patients, typically ranging in ages from infancy up to 12 years of age, and their families came from all over Georgia and the Southeast spend time with other families and volunteer staff from the Center and enjoy games, games, crafts, music, great food, and “Happy Tails” pet-assisted therapy dogs.
“The RB Picnic is my favorite event of the year,” says Baker Hubbard, (res. ’95-98) Emory Eye Center’s pediatric retinal specialist who treats these children. “I love getting to see all of our RB families together in an enjoyable setting away from the hospital.”
