Tell us about your business’ mission:
Life is full of challenges. Some we soar through on our own. For others, we need support. Cancer represents the challenge of a lifetime for many patients. When the diagnosis of cancer impacts you or someone you care about, the routines of daily life are suddenly disrupted. That’s why thriveosity was created. Thriveosity helps to soothe the disruption and ease the distress of a cancer diagnosis– and gives patients and their caregivers the tools they need to soar. With the monthly care boxes that Thriveosity lovingly puts together to support the healing process, survivors and caregivers journey the path to becoming thrivers – and not just survivors.
Best thing about your work:
Thriveosity was founded by Dr. Ritu Trivedi-Purohit, a Clinical Psychologist driven to improve quality of life for her cancer patients and their caregivers. Early in her career at Loyola University’s Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center, her work ignited the inspiration for the initial concept for Thriveosity. Dr. Ritu’s resilient and determined patients helped her learn valuable life lessons about courage and purposeful living. While working with her patients, Dr. Ritu noticed a gap in their care. Medications treated the disease…but patients needed more. She knew that it was critical to support the whole person during the cancer journey. Dr. Ritu identified five thriver “challenge areas” that cancer patients and their caregivers shared. This became the inspiration behind the distinct product categories that make up each. As part of her determination to make sure thrivers have what they need to survive, Dr. Ritu places special emphasis on products that are natural, clean and organic – free of any known toxic ingredients. When she’s not working with her patients, she enjoys travel, movies and bike rides. In the words of Dr. Ritu, Thrive On!
Why are you excited to partner with the YWCA?
I have always been inspired to support organizations that are invested in improving the lives of their members. The YWCA has a long history of providing support and services to communities. It is my honor and privilege to provide support to the YWCA and its numerous health & wellness initiatives.
