Hi! My name is Tonya Agostino, and I am a triple-negative breast cancer survivor!
My journey, like many others, came as a shock, with no history, good health, etc., and the unthinkable happened. I was instantly put on the whirlwind of doctor appointments, treatment, and having to make many decisions I knew nothing about.
My whole life had changed with these three words – YOU HAVE CANCER!
In the midst of my journey, I started researching as I felt there had to be a better way to heal or at least help heal yourself. I am a big believer that the body if given the right path, can heal itself. I am not saying that western medicine is not the way; I feel you need both.
I have chemo, as bad as it was, to thank for killing my cancer. However, I also have my faith in God and my belief to help myself heal. This is why I started Unstoppable Joy Co., to hopefully help others as they start their journey and let them know they are not alone.
My Uncle Bobby was diagnosed with stage 3 hormone-positive breast cancer in 2018. He underwent chemo, radiation and a mastectomy. He is now 4 years cancer-free.
When I was first diagnosed, Uncle Bobby called me every day. He wanted to make sure I was fully prepared for every step of my treatment journey. And he did not sugar coat anything. I am beyond grateful for Uncle Bobby’s continuous support.
We realized that many people going through cancer are not blessed with this kind of support. That is why we share our story with you. You are not alone.

Why the Peacock
The Peacock stands as the symbol of beauty, grace, wisdom and healing. The Peacock is a mystical animal and was considered sacred in ancient times. Peacocks are actually the Phoenix bird which stands for rebirth, healing and new beginnings. Seeing or having a Peacock symbol with you is considered good luck and that is why we choose the Peacock for our logo – in hopes to bring Good Luck to whoever sees it.
