Chemotherapy | Half Way Point

This week marks a small milestone in Lu’s Breast Cancer treatment as she reaches the halfway point in her chemotherapy regime. To date everything has gone to plan with no unexpected hiccups.

Since 2011 Lu has proudly shaved her head on 3 occasions in honour of Adem and in support of cancer patients during our World’s Greatest Shave campaigns.
