Knowing the Cancer Awareness Months

Cancer-Awareness-MonthsMany of our clients come to us because they are dealing with hair loss from radiation or chemotherapy to try and fight cancer. Whether it is breast cancer or thyroid cancer, the treatment can be rough and hair loss can only add to the devastation of the entire ordeal.
