You Can Thrive Foundation is a wonderful organization. Women need all the support they can get when faced with health challenges and YCTF gives them support in so many ways. What a blessing, every city should be so lucky.

I have donated my body care products to this foundation for a couple of years now and am so happy to do it. Luana is a remarkable, tireless advocate for these women and I feel it's the least I can do.

I think this foundation does incredible work in filling the void. Once a cancer survivor completes treatment, she doesn't just drop off the planet and the continued support is essential. You Can Thrive deserves our support and should be applauded for the needs they they filled thus far!
