Ambassador Laura

Laura Mills is a Kidscan ambassador and a childhood cancer survivor, she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia when she was just 16 years old. Now in her mid-30’s, Laura is living with late effects caused by the treatments used to save her life. After the initial course of intense chemotherapy Laura was suffering from seizures and doctors discovered the leukaemia had travelled to her brain. Laura then needed total body irradiation followed by a bone marrow transplant. After her cancer journey appeared to be over, Laura began developing health problems through her 20’s linked to damage caused by the chemotherapy. She suffers from migraines, requires a wheelchair due to acute poly motor neuropathy, has been diagnosed with chronic pain, calibre fibre neuropathy (a degenerative form). At the beginning of lockdown 2020 Laura started to lose her hair, patches at first but gradually it got worse and her scalp is now very sore and flaky. Doctors conducted a scalp biopsy but no cause has been determine. Laura believes strongly that it is another late effect of her cancer treatment.
