It started with the diagnosis nobody wants to hear: You have cancer.

When his doctor delivered that news, Justin McLean realized there was no option but to beat it. For his partner, his children, himself, he had to live. There was no plan B, which quickly became a mantra; an aspiration to not just survive cancer, but to thrive. To live. To become not merely a survivor, but a thrivor 

Imagine if you worked all your life, was not extravagant, saved your money, and on the eve of retirement, there is a knock on your door telling you that you have lost all your savings. You are bankrupt and they are not sure why. That’s cancer. No dialogue. No preparation. No forewarning. Just a decision from someone, somewhere that you are up.”
— Justin McLean, Thrivor
