A Retinoblastoma Survivor

Story & Photo Provided by Meredith

We received a story today from a Retinoblastoma survivor named Meredith. We hope her words will bring comfort to others who are currently battling Retinoblastoma. Here is Meredith’s story:


Dr. Jerry Shields saved my life!
I was 22 months when I was diagnosed with unilateral Retinoblastoma. It was thanks to Dr. Jerry Shields that I am alive and still have my eye. He saved my life and thanks to him I was able to become a teacher, get married, and have two beautiful healthy boys. The work that is done at Wills are truly miracles!
