Prior to her death, Melanie Ham was a successful crafting YouTuber who boasted over 800,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel. On her channel, Ham showed crafters how to create items like face masks, blankets, beanies, and more. Her most popular videos garnered millions of views, but crafting was not the only topic that viewers tuned in for. Ham also openly discussed her family life and cancer diagnosis on her YouTube channel and blog.

Last October, Ham updated her fans on her blog and said that her health had been rapidly declining, despite her undergoing surgery to be tumor-free. “After surgery I had new symptoms and after a scan we discovered that the cancer spread and had become very aggressive… again,” she wrote, adding her cancer had progressed faster than anticipated. “We’re always trying to stay optimistic that this will be the treatment that works, but the truth is there is no clear path on how to battle this, so we’re just gonna keep fighting,” she continued.

As a result of her undergoing treatment, Ham had to put crafting videos on the back burner. The last video she uploaded was dated April 2021. Fans expressed their condolences to Ham’s husband Robert and their family on her social media pages. “She helped so many people through her videos. She was a teacher of so many skills!,” one fan wrote, whereas another said Ham felt “like an old friend.”
