Here is our story and how this came to be:

On November 30th 2010 my Uncle and LURE Salon’s co-owner, Dan Nguyen, was diagnosed with Leukemia.  When a loved one is suddenly faced with the diagnosis of a blood cancer, you desperately want to hear that there is hope and that a treatment is available. We are so grateful for the Hematology Research and Clinical Trials Unit at VGH and their commitment to provide patients with the newest and most effective treatments available. Without this my Uncle Dan wouldn’t be here with us. We are so blessed that he is healthy, we decided to get involved and give back.
