The ThrivR Team

Founded by two cancer warriors who envision a world where the word “cancer” is not seen as a limitation to those who are inflicted.

Together we are:

Transforming, Harmonizing, Restoring, Inspiring, Vocalizing & RESILIENT!

Jonny Puglia

Co-Founder

Diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Colon Cancer on his 30th birthday (2018), Jonny has thrived through 115 rounds of chemotherapy and immunotherapy, as he battles his way through cancer. He strives to defy limitations every day by playing competitive soccer, chairing on LGBTQ non-profits, traveling the world, and storm-chasing.

Lauren Lopez

Co-Founder

Diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Cervical Cancer two months after her 30th birthday (2017) has thrived not just once but twice through her reoccurring cancer. Besides running her own blog, Lauren continued with her passions as a Yoga Instructor, becoming a Reiki Master, connecting with people, and gardening. Even after her passing in 2020, Lauren continues to shine as brightly as any star in the sky; with her long-lasting legacy of acceptance, confidence, and resilence!
