Andrew Spencer in the recovery room.

Andrew Spencer in the recovery room after one of his dozens of surgeries to keep retinoblastoma at bay.


Andrew’s cancer is in remission because of early detection and multiple surgeries. The course to beating retinoblastoma is incredibly difficult for a child. Yet  unlike the standard prognosis of a decade ago, it is not only possible to survive retinoblastoma today, but avoid blindness too. BeyondRB’s mission is to develop awareness of this deadly disease, help victims and their families, and fund research to develop an early-detection program.

This video was recorded during one of Andrew’s approximately 40 retinoblastoma surgical treatments.
