Localife Edmonton


We are gearing up for our December/Christmas event and we are thrilled to say it will be a private booking at Crankpots Ceramic Studios.

As we have the whole studio to ourselves, we will also be having a pizza party — with appetizers — non-alcoholic beverages, and some delicious desserts. There will be gluten free options for pizzas and if you have any other food allergy, please let us know .We will make sure you are accommodated.

Everyone will get a $15 budget to spend on an item to paint/create. If your item is over $15, we just ask you cover the additional costs (CASH ONLY AT THE STUDIO). Don’t worry, there are a lot of items that are $15 and under.

Pending numbers we are just opening this up to survivors, but will let you know if supporters are welcomed to join closer to the event.

Event: Christmas at Crankpots, 10702-82 (Whyte) Ave, Edmonton, AB
Date: Saturday, December 21, 2019
Time: 6:30 – 9:30 pm
RSVP to [email protected] By Wednesday, December 18, 2019.

However, I think you learn a lot more about yourself when you go through cancer with a knife in your hand. To test my theory, for Courtney’s first official event as the Edmonton Localife co-leader, we decided to get everyone together in late October for a good old-fashioned Jack O-Lantern carving party.

My name is Mandy Lamothe. I’m 34 and work as a program assistant in radiation oncology.

In 2013, I found a lump on my right side of my neck shortly after my mom started chemo for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (rare as hers was in her brain). By March 2014, I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. By April 2017, I was diagnosed with lung mets.

In my spare time, I can be found hiking the River Valley with my doggies, doing yoga, hanging out with my hubby, or out watching the latest movie.


We look forward to hearing from you, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]youngadultcancer.ca!
