Hannah Jane Nancarrow is a San Diego native. As a kid, she split her time between her family’s farm in rural North County San Diego and local T.V. newsrooms. Hannah graduated cum laude from San Diego State University with her degree in journalism.

 On January 28th, 2013, Hannah’s world was forever changed when her beloved dad was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and given one year to live. On that day, Hannah and her dad started a blog from his hospital room – The Nancarrow Project. Over the next 11 months, The Nancarrow Project blog garnered the acclaim of hundred of thousands of readers as Hannah spent her days as co-author and apprentice to her talented journalist father.

Loren Nancarrow passed away on December 28th, 2013, after 11 months of bravely battling and blogging. Hannah has since had the opportunity to be a keynote speaker at San Diego Women’s Week, Scripps Concert for Cancer, Cancerstock and Relay for Life. Hannah has also teamed up with The San Diego Brain Tumor Foundation, The American Cancer Society and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, fundraising to help other courageous cancer patients in the fight of their lives.  The Nancarrow family partnered with Scripps Health to create The Loren Nancarrow Healing Garden at The Scripps Radiation Therapy Center at Torrey Pines.

Today, Hannah writes her own popular motivational blog, and is a top fundraiser for cancer-related causes throughout San Diego. Hannah earned her real estate license and works in the family business, Nancarrow Realty Group, in North County San Diego, and she is the real estate marketing expert for the San Diego T.V. show ‘Real Time Dream Homes’ on Fox 5. Hannah has also cultivated a passion for health and fitness, since losing 75+ pounds in 2011. She earned and currently holds Spinning® and fitness instructor certifications, and teaches weekly cycle classes in Encinitas, California. In 2016, she achieved her longtime goal of summiting the highest peak in the contiguous U.S.A, Mt. Whitney.
In her dad’s final blog post, just 2 days before he passed, he wrote: “One of the lessons I’ve learned in life is that happiness lies in discovering your passions and exploring them fiercely…” — and Hannah is doing just that.

  1. Hannah, I am so inspired by yours and your Dad’s blogs. I remember when I was pushed to blog about myself and I couldn’t imagine why people would care what I had to say . . . but was always assured they did. Now that I am reading your family’s story, I get it.
    Trusting that all the Nancarrows will find their own discoveries in this journey. . .and wishing each of you the very best.

  2. Hannah-
    Wishing your dad much hope in this journey. We’ve always loved your dad’s talent in reporting. We hope you can carry on his legacy. Nice blog work too! You are a lovely lady! Good luck!
