Hanh Kim Huynh

September 7, 1984 ~ February 21, 2021 (age 36)

Tribute

Our beautiful Hanh Huynh, 36, of San Jose passed away too early from her fight with cancer at Stanford
Hospital in Palo Alto, California on Feb 21, 2021. She was surrounded by her husband Michael Huynh,
her family, and her colleagues whom she worked alongside at Stanford Hospital. She was a soldier who
had fought a three-year battle with breast cancer. She went into remission in September 2019 after
undergoing several treatments. Unfortunately, the cancer returned and metastasized throughout her
body. She resumed treatment right away, fighting it head on. Even though the harsh treatments were
debilitating to her physical strength, she continued to fight her disease with everything that was in her.
While in the hospital, she stayed in good spirits and made all her nurses feel like they were family. She
even helped plan a nurse’s trip to Hawaii, and during her final days, she helped the nursing students
doing clinicals on her floor by sharing her own knowledge. She never gave up the fight, the fight for
knowledge, the fight for love, and the fight for life.
Hanh was born on September 7, 1984 to Han Do and Bong Huynh in San Jose, CA. She was one of
seven siblings. After graduating from Gunderson High School in 2002, Hanh attended the University of
California, Riverside, with a focus in Biology, and graduated in 2007. She was determined to pursue her
nursing degree at Loma Linda University, which she completed in 2013. Hanh was ambitious to excel in
academics; with the yearning to always learn, she was the kid with thick cute glasses and a backpack full
of textbooks. She was passionate in her career as an ICU nurse to help save lives and influence positive
change in hospitals.
Hanh was a blessing in so many lives. A bright and kind individual, she was truly a beautiful person,
inside and out. Hanh showed everyone unconditional love and care. Always the utmost thoughtful and
caring person, she put others first, constantly trying to help others in any way that she could. She was
also extremely thankful when others assisted her.
Hanh had gained valuable nursing experience at Stanford Hospital, St. Louise Regional Hospital,
Washington Hospital, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, and Loma Linda University Medical Center,
where she touched the lives of her colleagues through her commitment to deliver high-quality care to
patients. She was a member of Stanford Hospital’s Shared Leadership Council, where she was able to
implement positive change. For the past five years, she was a member of the Intensive Care Unit Float
Pool, providing care to all critically ill patients. In addition, she trained fellow nurses to become members
of the Intensive Care Unit Float Pool. She assisted in safely opening makeshift ICU units when the need
arose during the pandemic. When given challenging assignments, she excelled and had great patient
outcomes. She was always trying to learn new techniques and researching the latest best practices in
medical care.
She also loved swimming, hiking, playing badminton, and caring for her fur-baby, Muffin. Very passionate
about cooking, she was determined to master all the recipes that she fell in love with and loved sharing
her culinary creations. She spent as much quality time as possible with her loved ones, making sure their
bellies were full with her authentic and diverse dishes. Hanh enjoyed travelling, especially to beach
destinations. Swimming and biking alongside the water were her favorite activities. Hanh loved to dance
and attend live music performances and music festivals. She enjoyed EDM music, and dancing the night
away with giggles, drinks, and taking selfies with her loved ones.
Hanh met her husband, Michael, randomly while working at Stanford Hospital, in the very same ICU
where he later cared for her in her final days. She accidently bumped into him and later messaged him to
say thanks for helping her. This spark ignited the love in their hearts. They fell in love and had a fairytale
wedding in the middle of a pandemic alongside her siblings. Hanh and Michael continued to work at
Stanford, helping the critically ill. Together, they spent their free time cooking, traveling, hiking, and
immersing themselves in beautiful moments with friends and family.
Hanh was the person in the family everyone could confide in. She put her heart into everything she did for
them, whether it’s cooking a dish, picking out a gift; she was always there for them. As a sister and a
daughter, she was a joy to be around because she made each of her loved ones feel uniquely special.
She had an immense passion for helping others and was always a source of positivity. Hanh never
judged people, taking the time to understand them as individuals. Even through a person’s most
vulnerable and least proud moments, she always saw the goodness of that person’s soul. Everyone felt
comfortable and free to be themselves around her, as she brought nothing but smiles and laughter
everywhere she went.
Above all, she was ambitious to love with her whole heart unconditionally. Her family and friends will miss
her more than words can say. Her love will always be with us and continue to grow for many days and
years to come. The Hanh we know would want each and one of you to continue to do things in her honor,
continue to feel her love with you, be strong, and happy.
Hanh is survived by her husband Michael; her fur baby that she cared for 13 years, Muffin; her mother
-Bong Huynh; her stepfather Anh Nguyen; her sisters Kim Do, Helen Khau, Maile Huynh; and her
brothers Phuc Nguyen, Thinh Nguyen, and Thuong Nguyen Huynh. She was predeceased by her late
father Han Do.
