As a young adult living with cancer, I learned pretty quickly that there aren’t many resources available that provide community, support, inspiration and knowledge for young thrivers. When I began my cancer journey, most of the sites I visited were totally unrelatable, while some of the more “prestigious” cancer site’s chat rooms left me feeling more fearful than I already was. They honestly scared the living crap out of me. In addition, there are so many other challenges that young thrivers are faced with that aren’t addressed or acknowledged…at least that was my own personal experience.
As a result, I made it my mission to educate myself and learn everything I possibly could about the treatment and prevention of cancer and “dis-ease” and search for resources that were relative to young thrivers. I learned so much and continue to accumulate a ton of helpful information, which inspired me to create this site with the mission to spread love, hope and knowledge. I truly believe that all of the lifestyle changes and practices I have implemented have played a tremendous part in keeping me alive and healthy. However, it is my belief that there is no medicine or remedy greater than the power of faith. One must believe to overcome. One must continue to live to thrive. And through these great acts of faith and courage, one can and will inspire others to do the same.
I was waiting…..and waiting…. to go into “remission” before starting this project until one day it became clear to me that starting this venture in the midst of my journey would be a detrimental part of my own personal healing.
If you or someone you know has been affected by cancer or any health challenge, if you’re in need of some inspiration or are into health and wellness, this site is for you, created with love, by me.
With my Whole Heart,
