Created by a breast cancer patient
During radiation therapy, Radiant Wrap is an alternative treatment gown designed for comfort, dignity and style.
It started with the words no one wants to hear: “You have Cancer.” I was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2010 after a small lump was found during an annual exam. I had two surgeries then underwent 8 weeks of radiation therapy.
The cancer center treatment team was amazing, but wearing that hospital gown every day to treatment was the one part that continually reminded me that I was sick, because, at that moment, I looked sick. I was stripped of my personality and felt uncomfortable, embarrassed, and cold. For weeks I wore those gowns thinking there had to be a better way.
This is where the Radiant Wrap was born
I decided to make a Wrap that met all treatment requirements, but at the same time made me look and feel beautiful. It is flattering, stylish, and uniquely designed for dignity during treatment.
Before I knew it, all the patients, doctors, and nurses were asking about the Wrap, and that’s when I thought that this could be a way to give a bit of hope and radiance to all women fighting breast cancer.
I was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2010 after a small lump was found on my right Breast during an annual exam. I had two surgeries then underwent 8 weeks of radiation therapy.
The Cancer Center that I went to was great; private parking spaces, fresh baked cookies, lending library, wide screen television, and a staff that was just wonderful. Every day I would walk in and my mood would rise as I was warmly greeted by the smiling staff and the smell of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. But then I would walk into the changing area, and reach into the cupboard to put on my gown.
Here is where the idea for Radiant Wrap was born. Putting on that hospital gown was the one part of the entire process that continually reminded me that I was sick, because at that moment, I looked sick. My personality was taken away, I was uncomfortable, cold and embarrassed. For weeks I wore those gowns, and kept thinking that there had to be a better alternative, so I designed Radiant Wrap.
The Wrap met all of the requirements for treatment, but at the same time made me look and feel beautiful. It is flattering, stylish, and uniquely designed. Before I knew it, everyone was asking me about it, and that’s when I thought that this could be my opportunity to share, to give a bit of hope and radiance to all of the women in the world who have to go through this experience.
After 10 years of being Cancer free, my cancer did return in 2020; it had metastasized to the bone. As I navigate my own journey, I try to keep a positive outlook and live each day to the fullest.
I’ll always believe that out of something bad something good is born and that every dark cloud has a silver lining. It is my sincere hope that Radiant Wrap can make everyone’s journey just a bit brighter.

I do this for my Mom. Seeing everything that she went through drives me to help others feel comfortable and more like themselves while fighting Breast Cancer.
I studied Entrepreneurship at San Francisco State University, and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Business.
When my Mom was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I was devastated and my world turned upside down.
But when she showed me the originally gown she designed, I was really impressed and knew she had an amazing idea. I decided to find a silver lining in all this, and turn her idea into a reality.
I passionately believe in Radiant Wrap and work tirelessly to bring this amenity to as many patients as possible.
My goal is that Radiant Wrap can make this terrible experience just a bit brighter.
