In our third edition of this series, we’d like to showcase THEYA Healthcare.
The idea for THEYA Healthcare came about in 2012, when CEO and Founder, Ciara Donlon was running her own successful lingerie shop in Dublin. Breast cancer survivors regularly came in looking for post-surgery bras but she was unable to find a product that really met their needs.
Seeing the amount of distress this caused these women, who were already going through such a difficult time, Ciara decided to see if she could create a post breast surgery bra that put their needs first.
With the input of 80 breast cancer survivors in Ireland and the UK, as well as advice from healthcare professionals, Ciara developed an innovative range of post-surgery lingerie. The bras and briefs are ideal for women who have undergone any type of breast, thoracic, pelvic or abdominal surgery. They are also a perfect choice for women who are receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The range, which is made from a novel and patented bamboo mix fabric, promotes healing, offers exceptional comfort and functionality whilst remaining beautiful.
Ciara chose THEYA, the name of a Hindu Goddess of power, to honour the strength of the women who inspired the brand. The plight of these women is one particularly close to Ciara’s heart, as her grandmother, Rose, the inspiration for the company’s logo, underwent a double mastectomy during her breast cancer treatment.
Today, THEYA Healthcare recognises that its unique fabric and design process has potential to help many more people. As well as extending its post-surgery range of lingerie, it plans to develop further ranges which will have a positive impact on health and wellbeing around the world.
Yet another amazing example of spotting a need, developing a solution and turning this solution into a commercial reality by building a business underpinned by innovation.
