Our next event

Break up with cancer this Valentine’s Day!

Whether you’re in a committed loving relationship or single as hell, we all have one thing in common this Valentine’s Day — we are all breaking up with cancer! Sorry, cancer, it’s not us, it’s YOU! Come join us for some good ol’ therapeutic axe throwing!

When: Sunday, February 16

Where: Axe and Grind (910Government St. #107, Victoria)

Cost: $5 per person (Localife Victoria will cover the rest!)

After axe throwing, if you haven’t had enough of us, we are heading to Frankie’s Modern Diner for whatever tickles your fancy (snacks provided).

If you haven’t been out to an event before, this is a great or to get your feet wet!

Leader bios

Amber Pywell

My name is Amber Pywell, and I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2015 at the age of 34. At the time, my kids were eight-, six-, and two-years-old. To say this added many difficult layers to my diagnosis would be an understatement. Navigating cancer, three kids, a husband, and trying to keep working through it all definitely left me failing on many days.

My connections through YACC have always come when I needed them most, and even when I didn’t know it was what I needed. Not only have I met many amazing people through YACC, but I have even made a few friends that I will cherish for life.

I am thrilled to be able to be a part of Localife Victoria! I know we can create a space that welcomes you when you are doing well, and more importantly, it will welcome you when you are failing. We will give you opportunities to break the routine and get out of the house. It will be a space free of judgement that will offer connections that can last as long as you need them. There will be much laughter, good food, and opportunities to get outside your comfort zone (but only if you want to).

It’s only awkward for a minute, and then you will wonder how you ever made it without us! So take a leap, and join us on our next adventure!
