    Proud in Your Own Skin: Skin, Hair, and Self Care

    [Image description: A multicolored, rainbow cancer awareness ribbon flows around the text, “Proud in Your Own Skin: Skin, Hair and Self Care." Accompanied by text reading, “Rainbow Ribbons: LGBTQ Cancer Support. So that no one faces cancer alone.” and the group description.]

    This event is being held virtually over Zoom with closed captioning provided.

    Please contact Robin Gow at [email protected] for more information and to receive the Zoom link. 

    Cancer treatments impact the whole body, and the skin is our largest organ. Some chemotherapies could bring about skin changes such as dryness, itchiness, or redness. Additionally, there's impact on the hair and nails. In this event we'll discuss a wide variety of methods that can help individuals feel more comfortable and find pride in their skin and themselves while going through the cancer treatment process. Guest speaker and professional cosmetologist and educator Danielle Johnson will lead the discussion and Jen Sinclair of the Cancer Support Community of Lehigh Valley will moderate. 

    Danielle Johnson’s holistic approach to professional haircare has made her a highly sought-after hair-stylist and educator. She is a graduate of Gordon Phillips and the AVEDA Institute, receiving her license to practice and teach cosmetology in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She is also a Vidal Sassoon scholarship winner and graduate. Danielle has worked with the best-providing styling services for New York Fashion Week, TV, Broadway, editorial, and industry greats. After years of extensive study and training, and the completion of numerous certifications in hair loss and protective styling systems, Danielle became a Certified Trichologist and a Certified Holistic Practitioner. She is also the go-to expert for hair loss and natural hair care.

    Danielle provides hands-on training programs, educational seminars, and motivational talks for aspiring beauty students and salon professionals through Danni J. Academy. Danielle is a highly requested speaker at local and national cancer awareness conferences providing beauty knowledge and support for those going through the cancer journey. She served as the lead beauty expert providing trichology and beauty services for patients at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America® in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. She is also a member of the American Hair Loss Council and other business professional associations.

    Danielle strives to educate and inspire those that are going through the journey.
