Brave Irish presenter shares “peak cancer appearance” on Twitter

RTÉ 2fm presenter Louise McSharry was last year diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and is currently undergoing a gruelling course of chemotherapy to combat it.

Rather than shying away from the issue, the well-known Dubliner has inspired many by sharing her journey, wigs n' all, on social media.

The presenter today posted an update from hospital, saying, "I think I have reached peak cancer appearance. Baldy, no eyebrows, no eyelashes, look a bit like Matt Lucas. Yep."

Matt Lucas would kill for those giant baby blues we reckon…

Louise revealed back in August that she would be taking a break from her 2fm show to focus on her recovery, telling Ryan Tubridy that she had "genuinely no doubt" she would be fine.

Her diagnosis came after Louise noticed a strange pain in her side which prompted her to visit a doctor.

Wishing you all the best for a speedy recovery, Louise.
