Get to know us
Meet the Founder: Thu Le
After being diagnosed with breast, uterus and thyroid cancer more than 10 years ago, Thu used her body, mind and spirit to give her the boost she needed to eventually win her battle. Upon discovering the success of her methods, Thu set out to research various dietary and spiritual treatments to help cancer sufferers feel nourished and energised. Thu has an outstanding array of 26 diplomas, degrees and certificates obtained in Australia, Netherlands, UK, USA and Vietnam. These all have contributed to the foundation of Hearty Center, a retreat for cancer patients that helps improve their health outcomes, combat side effects of treatments and most importantly help to manage the physical and emotional stress that a cancer diagnosis can bring.
My health and happiness are dependent on nurturing and balancing the needs of my body, mind and spirit. It is now my passion to share my journey with others to help them discover how their true balance can be achieved.
