ThriveWell was founded in 2007 offering three different but equally important programs to those battling cancer in San Antonio and the surrounding areas:
- ThriveWell Cancer Foundation’s Patient Assistance Program is focused on ensuring cancer patients are able to comply with their prescribed treatment plan by providing transportation and financial assistance to those in need. Through 2017, ThriveWell provided more than $1,000,000 in financial and transportation support, all to local cancer patients, since the inception of the program.
- ThriveWell also provides free exercise, nutrition, and wellness classes to cancer patients and survivors through our Diva&Dude program. Diva&Dude was developed because research shows that cancer patients who follow diet and exercise guidelines can significantly reduce their chance of recurrence. Currently, there are more than 200 San Antonians taking advantage of the program each month.
- The promise of curing cancer depends upon advances in science through clinical trials, particularly focusing on individually designed cancer treatments. ThriveWell funds cutting-edge research happening right here in our community and has provided $525,000 to 26 research projects covering prostate, ovarian, brain, lung and other cancers.
