"She and I worked at the Cambie hotel in Vancouver together," the Vancouver resident told The Chief. "She was an amazing person.... I wish nothing but the best for her daughters."

ABC's A Million Little Things revolves around a group of Boston friends. When one of them dies by suicide, the remaining friends start to truly live.

One of the enduring themes of the show is the importance of friendship.

Hanson was a beloved local whose friends remembered in online posts as being positive and always ready to lend a hand to others.

She died Jan. 27 of Leptomeningeal carcinomatosis (LC), a rare complication of cancer just weeks after finding out her illness was terminal.

 About a year ago, Hanson found a lump in her nose that was later diagnosed as cancer.

A celebration of life for Hanson is set for Feb. 16 at Squamish's Totem Hall at 2 p.m. Attendees are asked to come with stories that could be shared with Hanson's daughters.

Several fundraisers have been launched to help support her mother, Sue Hanson Yates who is caring for her granddaughters.
