In brief: No
Chemo, depending upon the type, can cause hair roots to stop functioning for a while and lead to loss of hair. The lashes a brows are more resistant to this but they can also lose them. It depends upon the type of chemo and the resistance of your body.
Fortunately most of this recovers as the chemo course is stopped. Discuss with your oncologist.
