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.
