Thane is a disabled USMC veteran who suffers from PTSD incurred by a severe Traumatic-Brain Injury during his service.
The tragic events of 9/11 inspired Thane to join the USMC while residing in Canada. Before starting boot camp in the United States, he was homeless, living in his truck and showering at 24-Hour Fitness.
He’s experienced invasive and debilitating skin rashes since childhood and was diagnosed severely obese and pre-diabetic. Since then, he’s found a cure through diet and nutrition.
Thane graduated Summa Cum Laude from Purdue University, specializing in Nutrition and Holistic Medicine.
Cynthia is a craniofacial disability activist, fashion model, and graduate student with a Master’s degree in Public Health at Purdue University. A high-school and college dropout, she bravely persevered in the face of rejection and began earning her college degrees after returning to school. She is currently pursuing her Doctorate's Degree in Business Administration.
Cynthia has overcome many chronic health conditions caused by Treacher Collins Syndrome, a genetic birth defect that affects the bones, muscles, and soft tissues of the face and skull. To date, she’s undergone 16+ reconstructive plastic surgeries.
Murphy currently works as a health and wellness activist and CFO with her husband Thane through their free award-winning charity app and website Assuaged.
As the Murphys suffered a myriad of progressively worsening symptoms, they were led into the realm of veganism. They quickly realized that cases of cancer and medical illness are on the rise globally. Eating organically nutritious foods is challenging due to the scarcity of health resources and money.
Assuaged was founded on the concept of the blue zones movement and in the region of Loma Linda, California – one of only five geographical areas in the world and the only one in the United States. Research studies and several news reports have established that residents in these blue zones maintain supreme health and live past the age of one hundred.
The Murphys are passionately seeking to bridge the gap between healthcare and self-care to meet the needs of healthy living as a method for longevity. They are going beyond charity and unifying people through love and compassion.
