September is childhood cancer awareness month, and my cancer is retinoblastoma which is the cancer of the eye that has survival between ages zero and five years old. On average technology has been improving so that there are more survivors, but it's still rare.

Abiola is a 20 something London based lifestyle vlogger. On her YouTube channel, she brings talks of surviving retinoblastoma to light, creating conversations of empowerment, hope, and encouragement in a world resistant to the powers of inclusion and diversity.
