I was diagnosed in Feb of 2014 with stage 2 Triple Negative Breast cancer. This was a very difficult time. Thanks to Christy and J. Clay Salon, my experience was made better. Through the process of losing my hair, Christy was professional and patient. She cut my hair in a private room in the salon, which allowed me to deal with this emotional time without being out in front of everyone. She helped me choose a wig that looked natural and stylish. When the wig came in she styled it to my preference. After my chemo treatments were complete, she gave me advice on how to restore my hair to its healthy state with Lanza Hair products. Thanks Christy and J. Clay for your support through this difficult time.
