Hannah (She/Her)

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.

Miranda (she/her)

Hello Friends! My name is Miranda and I am honoured to be one of your Localife Vancouver leaders.

I moved to Whistler from Wales in 2015 and have been working in the hospitality sector since I landed. “The Big C” came into my life in 2019 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 29 years old. I chose to stay in Canada for treatment as I felt I had set up a pretty sweet life here, and I’m glad I did. Not only did I receive top-notch treatment, I was also lucky to find YACC and attend Retreat Yourself 2020 in Ontario — my only trip to the east to date!

In my spare time, I like to read, play video games, and be outside in the mountains. I am stoked to be a part of YACC and to be able to give back to the community! Can’t wait to meet you!

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