Genetic Counsellor helping kids with cancer

Medical Research


Genetic Counsellor Laura Yeates, from Centenary’s Molecular Cardiology Program, has taken the plunge and cut 35cm of her luscious locks to help children with cancer.

The hair will be made into a wig for someone who has lost their own hair due to a medical condition.

Laura, along with three of her friends, have also been raising money for Hair with Heart, which is still open for donations.

Congratulations, Laura!
