My name is Hannah and I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2017 when I was 22 years old. I had just finished my Bachelor of Science degree at UBC with my sights set on going to veterinary school. My diagnosis completely turned my career upside down and created a lot of distance between me and my social network at the time. Luckily, one round of chemo did the trick, but accepting a new career path and building new connections was just as challenging and is still an on going process.
I found out about YACC through another local Vancouver charity and it has been wonderful to be part of a group that just “gets it.” So far I have attended the Big Cancer Hook-up, Retreat Yourself Adventure, and several Localife events.
In my spare time I love escaping to the mountains and being surrounded by wildlife and nature. I am excited to be a part of Localife Vancouver and meet some amazing people.
Hi everyone! My name is Norma. Although the circumstances of me getting here to be the Localife leader weren’t the best (cancer sucks), I am grateful for the opportunity to meet and hear everyone’s own story with it. I believe there is something we can all learn from one another when we get together and share our experiences. I also like to have fun! Looking forward to spending time with you and making some new amigos! See you soon! Lots of love.
We look forward to hearing from you, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]!
