Luana DeAngelis is a Social Entrepreneur who has emerged in the field of integrative health, disease prevention and palliative cancer care. She descends as fourth generation in a family of women in natural health, and created a non-profit in 2005 using this knowledge to transform first her experience with cancer and then the way cancer survivorship is approached by our system. Through her generational family background and professional experience in the holistic health field, she has become well known as an active patient advocate and public speaker for community building, palliative aftercare and patient needs.
Her passionate work creates momentum in the shift in our health care system, from treatment of disease towards a focus on cooperative hands-on prevention. Her charity effort You Can Thrive! empowers the community in manifesting their best lives and highest health through alleviating the suffering in their own backyards; by taking responsibility for their own health and the health of their community. This non-profit effort has established a new holistic aftercare palliative care model for cancer working with the best professionals from across the NYC area. This effort is currently focused on building a new hybridized utopian preventative health-care model.
