David and Tricia Dougherty moved to Wilmington in 2007. They came for the beach, but soon found a great lifestyle, community and fantastic food. Six years later, Tricia was diagnosed with breast cancer. After enduring chemotherapy, radiation and surgery as part of her treatment protocol, and recognizing their impact on her well-being, Tricia started searching for more. “Is this all there is to help with cancer?” she would say. Tricia, with David’s support, committed herself to reading and research, finding there was much more to assist people on their journey. She wanted to make her mind body and spirit the best version of herself (thanks, Matt Kelly!); she wanted to Thrive! Over the next 4 years, Tricia was committed to living her best life, and helping others do the same. Today, David honors her memory and her passion by joining her friends to continue her dream to help people with resources and education so that they, too, can Thrive!
