Cancer Thrivers Summit helps cancer patients and the people around them to live with utmost joy

In line with Cancer Awareness Month, this year’s Cancer Thrivers Summit is dedicated to helping cancer patients, their loved ones, and caregivers live their lives with utmost joy amidst the challenges of their cancer journey.

Cancer Thrivers Summit

Our goal is to educate, uplift, and motivate cancer warriors (as well as their love givers) to flourish despite hardship. This is Charity Marohombsar’s way of giving back to cancer thrivers. Having survived stage 4 cancer herself, she has made it her life’s work to guide and support the cancer community as a life doula and cancer thriver coach. This event is the second run following last year’s debut success.
