You Can Thrive! Foundation
June 13, 2012

I arrived at Thrive a few days before my chemo began, terrified about the toxic drugs coming down the pike and their potential effects on my otherwise healthy body. Fast forward a few months--all eight rounds of chemo completed--and I can tell you that two things got me through this physically and emotionally grueling time: support from my family and friends plus the services and community provided by You Can Thrive. The holistic modalities on offer (acupuncture, reiki and nutritional counseling to name a few) are top notch in easing pain and aiding healing, but it goes far beyond that. The practitioners who volunteer their time and expertise do so with such openness, warmth and a genuine desire to help the women they serve. As a client, I always felt welcomed and fully accepted by the providers, volunteers and founder Luana herself. It's a safe environment where breast cancer patients can doff their wigs, reveal their fears and share their stories, all while receiving wonderful, complementary treatments to balance the harsh effects of traditional cancer protocols. I'm grateful I found Thrive, through a survivor at a SHARE support group, and I'm happy when I can return the favor to another newly diagnosed woman. It's as if I'm passing along a treasured key that opens the door to surviving cancer with just a little more ease and grace and a lot more happiness and good health.
