HairDoc TK’s, “A Toxic Tale of The Follicly Challenged.”
This Ted Talk about Hair, Health, and Hope is a journey for advocacy, self-awareness, and a challenge to all society to take life into their own hands. HairDocTk is self-educated with various certificates in her field where at the age of 30 her only choice while battling Renal Cell Carcinoma leading into breast implant illness also losing a kidney was to read everything!s.
Hairdoc TK CEO of Medically Challenged Community (MCC) is a renal cell carcinoma, breast implant illness, and hair restoration Advocate. My massive community education efforts resulted in securing a local TED TALK, in which I share my inspirational life story how I survived cancer and restored my hair and the reason for my relentless advocacy efforts across hair loss communities and in my own industry and the correlation to implants, cancer, and ongoing hair loss.
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 a 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 exhaustive research into alternative methods to revitalize and regrow 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 “disease” in the entire body came next.
