Medically Challenged Community was created to offer hair and hope! As a very recent RRC survivor, I personally understand the need to look and feel better on the outside while you are going through such a traumatic time of feeling like a mess on the inside. After losing my kidney to cancer I wanted to be able to give back to the community. This site is launched with an effort to help rescue others and battle hair loss in our community one strand at a time. Cancer being the number one terminal illness is not the only disease that causes hair loss issues. I encourage any and all sufferers to band together to battle these diseases.
Tammy Kelichner “HairDocTK” was diagnosed at age 30 with severe autoimmune disorder which caused deteriorating healthiness and stark hair loss. In 2014 she developed cancer of the kidney or RCC. Later that year she ended up having one kidney completely removed. She was able to complete an exhaustive research into alternative methods to revitalize and re grow her hair and balance her immune system. Her research did find that the onset of injuries and disease was greatly enhanced from mental/emotional happiness (strain). As health deteriorated the body accelerated breaking down it caused malfunctions and illness. Disease “dis ease” in the entire body came next.
