The Thrive Icon has a very special meaning. It is a constant reminder of where we have been, and where we are now. It also holds us accountable to the commitment we made to ourselves to never ever give up on our dreams! Being a survivor does not define us, being a Thriver does!
The Green accent bow represents rebirth, renewal, a new beginning, hope and for me Jesus Christ. It is on top because it covers over everything else. It is the one color on the icon that never changes.
The ‘C’ is for cancer and the color represents the type of cancer you were diagnosed with. I was diagnosed with brain cancer and grey is the ribbon color for Brain Cancer.
The number is the length of your treatment. It can be measured is days, weeks, months, or years. 48 represents 48 days of radiation followed by 48 weeks of chemotherapy, the duration of my treatment.
The bottom accent bow can be the secondary ribbon color of your cancer, or a color that represents something close to your heart. For myself the Gold bow represents a secondary ribbon, the Gold ribbon of childhood cancer
This Thrive Icon is trademarked and can be individualized to any cancer thriver
