Meet Our Founder

I’m Elissa. I was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer in July of 2021, at the age of 34, and just a few days before my daughter’s first birthday. I was overwhelmed with the love and support of family and friends who reached out asking what they could do and how they could help. It meant the world to me, but I realized — I had no idea how they could help. I had never been through any of this before!

I thought to myself: what if there was something like a wedding or baby registry that could offer all of the things a patient needs.

And not just products, like comfy clothing, socks and footwear that best help you through chemo, but services like haircuts to prepare for hair loss, eyebrow microblading, and facials. Even a general expense fund if they choose. So many people in our lives want to help us through this journey — and it’s so often wasted on things that aren’t what we truly need!

Quality of life is important no matter what kind of treatment you’re going through, and is here to make sure it’s easier for you to be a thriver with the many products and services supporters can get for you.
