Who is Lisa O’Hara?
Lisa is one courageous gal. In April 2011, aged 23, she was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC). It’s a rare cancer that for Lisa presented in her salivary gland behind her right ear. Further tests showed it had advanced to bones nearby and down in her lungs. She’s had 15 surgeries and 30 radiotherapy treatments. She was hospitalised with pneumonia last year and has recently returned from a trip to China to try an alternative therapy option. Lisa’s full and courageous story can be read here.
Lisa is a model and so a plan was hatched to bring together some awesome Hot Rods and Harleys, models, make up artists and photographers. Everyone had all day to photograph some stunning models with the cars. Great fun was had, Lisa came and did a great job modeling with lots of the cars for several hours. They raised $1900 for Lisa which was brilliant. Every bit helps, so if you would like to donate, please follow the link at the bottom of Lisa’s website.
She was interviewed on the day, the interview is called Lisa-Maree O’Hara – Her Cancer Story.
