A CHESTER businesswoman who has been battling breast cancer is offering a unique salon service to those also affected by cancer.

Kimberly Noble was diagnosed with breast cancer on October 11, 2018 at the age of 40, just weeks after getting married to Sean on August 26.

The mum from Hoole is currently recovering, having gone through 16 rounds of chemotherapy, 15 rounds of radiotherapy, a mastectomy and having her lymph nodes removed.

Now Kimberly is looking to give something back to show her support for medical staff who helped treat her and for those undergoing cancer treatment themselves.

Kimberly, owner of The Hair and Beauty Lounge on Brook Street, explained: "I know how hard it is losing your hair and when it starts growing back, the NHS and the staff at the breast cancer unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital have been amazing with my treatment.

"I own a salon in Brook Street and would love to give something back, so am once-a-week free trim, scalp treatment to anyone just getting their hair back after treatment, as it helps encourage the hair to grow.

"We can also share our stories over a cuppa and cake."

Kimberly would like to thank several people who have helped her while she has gone through breast cancer treatment.

They include Sean, her rock through all of this; Rachael Connolly, hair extensions specialist at the salon; Becky, a hairdresser and nail technician who started the day of Kimberly's first chemotherapy treatment and "just got on with it"; hairdresser Hannah; make-up artist Jordan Ford and Japanese hairdresser Kasumi.

Kimberly added: "My team have been amazing, which is why my salon has gone from strength to strength and we can offer this amazing little pick-me-up."
