Our Story

It all started with a Rose. Theya Healthcare founder Ciara Donlon’s grandmother, Rose Donlon.

Rose was a breast cancer survivor and an amazing lady who inspired her grandaughter to set a new standard for women when they need it most.

Our story starts back in 2015. Theya Healthcare founder and CEO Ciara Donlon owned a lingerie boutique in Ranelagh, Dublin, Ireland. Women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer were coming into the store, trying to find a bra that accommodated their body throughout their breast cancer journey, without compromising on quality, comfort, or style. 

​Locating a bra of this kind proved to be a far more difficult task than Ciara had imagined.  Choices currently on the market were few, and comfort and style were nowhere to be found. Women were forced to wear mastectomy bras made from itchy, scratchy, downright uncomfortable material designed by male engineers, or choose from a maternity or sports bra. ​

Ciara began worldwide research, with real women going through breast cancer

Because real women know what they want and need from a bra as they go through breast cancer treatment.

To this day we continue to place women at the center of the design process. We listen to what is needed by the women we are here to serve.

Our Bamboo Fabric

When searching for a natural, sustainable alternative to the materials currently on the market, Ciara discovered bamboo, and it was love at first feel.

Bamboo fabric is superbly soft and widely believed to contain healing properties. It sounded like a miracle material, but rumor wasn’t going to cut it, Ciara wanted scientific proof.

This led to a clinical study, where Theya Healthcare bamboo fabric was put to the test. The results exceeded all expectations (read all about it here).

The revolution in women’s underwear began. ​
