Just Ask David fans know that David Pollock’s dedication to Safe Beauty all stems from cancer awareness.
Our special guest Caitlin Kiernan joins us right before the month of October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month - to share an extraordinarily inspiring opportunity for women who have dealt with or are currently dealing with cancer.
Even as an award-winning journalist and beauty director for the likes of Life & Style Weekly, Star!, and OK! magazines, the Cancer Wellness Expo is a passion project for Caitlin.
Caitlin has been featured as a contributor in The Wall Street Journal, Refinery29, Harper’s Bazaar, and The New York Times, among other prestigious media outlets.
But after the rewarding feeling of releasing her book Pretty Sick: The Beauty Guide for Women with Cancer, Caitlin wanted to do even more for cancer patients and survivors.
“It’s all about taking care of yourself during treatment because sometimes that gets lost in the mix. I wanted women to have access to all the information I had access to when I was going through treatment.”
Caitlin calls the Cancer Wellness Expo her book come to life.
What is the Cancer Wellness Expo?
A cancer diagnosis is more than enough to make anyone’s head spin.
And while treatment can help get rid of the cancer, many cancer patients become so worried about surviving that they neglect other parts of their overall wellness - understandably so.
Simply put, the Cancer Wellness Expo gives women who are cancer patients or survivors the best spa day they’ve ever had.
Let’s put it this way: your morning begins with a peaceful yoga session and ends with a VIP cocktail party.
“It’s all the different facets of wellness just for cancer patients and survivors,” Caitlin explains. “All the unique things that affect us, from how our medicine changes our body to how we reposition our relationship with food and exercise.”
And the Cancer Wellness Expo is just as educational (and star-studded!) as it is rejuvenating.
“We’re bringing in all the leading experts and influencers and celebrities to have these kinds of provocative conversations and to also have a lot of pampering,” Caitlin says. “Who doesn’t need that when you’re going through treatment?”
