Clare man, Robert Wainwright has decided to shave his head in solidarity with his partner, Gwen Ryan who is currently going through cancer treatment.
Gwen had a lumpectomy and radiotherapy seven years ago, but underwent a mastectomy in October and now requires chemotherapy.
With the hair loss that will occur, she decided it would be nice for Robert to shave his head too. The suggestion prompted him to set up a fundraiser to mark the occasion to help cancer research and bring a little fun into these uncertain times.
On Tuesday’s Morning Focus, Gavin Grace spoke to Robert Wainwright and Gwen Ryan about the fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute based at NUI Galway.
