Stefanie Veraghtert - Founder & Director
"I am a 31-year old social entrepreneur that has a passion for coffee and people. Diagnosed with cancer at the age of 26 I became a young adolescent cancer survivor."
"The last 5 years of my life were definitely the most challenging that pushed me to grow in ways I thought I could never grow. I embraced the glorious mess that I was and decided to make a big career shift. I launched my social brand - The Big C. - to inspire and empower with my story, determined to make a positive impact on individual and community level."

"The Big C. means everything to me. It made me realize that I can still chase my dreams and achieve my goals, even with the limitations. That was a feeling that I lost for a long time. Now I feel strong and empowered."
