Two small group discussions are taking place around separate tables.

Ohana: The Beating Heart of One Retinoblastoma World 2024

Though small and far-flung, our global retinoblastoma family stands strong together. Members of WE C Hope USA’s Board of Directors and past One Rb World participants explain how this conference unites us and strengthens ohana. In trial, grief, hope, and triumph, we share and learn from our collective experience, support one another, and strive to care for all.

A large, diverse group of people pose together in a conference room. Most are dressed in smart casual attire. Many are smiling and waving at the camera, and those in the centre are holding a large banner that reads "One Retinoblastoma World". A large world map features on the wall behind the group. At the front, two ladies sit close together holding a plush elephant with removable eye between them. The elephant is bedecked in red, white and blue flowers.

Laulima: Many Hands, One Retinoblastoma World

Laulima signifies the power of cooperation, teamwork and collective effort.  This Hawaiian concept of many hands striving together drives the One Rb World conference, taking place in Honolulu this October.  Members of our 2024 conference team explain how laulima inspires their work for this global community, united to advance retinoblastoma care for all.

Two women are seated at a round table in a conference room, directly facing each other as they engage in deep discussion. The woman on the left clasps her hands on her lap and looks highly focused. The woman on the right gesticulates with both hands raised to chest level, palms facing towards the other woman, with her fingers splayed. She appears to be explaining or emphasizing a point, or trying to convey information clearly. A tablet and notepad rest on the table between the two ladies.
