Amy Soranno

Canadian animal rights activist

Amy Soranno (born 1993/1994) is a Canadian animal rights activist in British Columbia.

Around the age of 20, Soranno went from being healthy to becoming chronically ill and was diagnosed with POTS at age 20. After seeing 14 different specialists in Canada, she sought help in the US. She was diagnosed in November 2013 with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). She has also been diagnosed with Lyme disease and Sjögren syndrome. At one point she was confined to her bed 90% of the time.

On July 20, 2019, while giving a headline speech, Soranno suddenly sat down on a chair. Soranno then briefly explained that she was “sick” and suffers from a heart condition, nerve disorder, connective tissue disease, and significant allergy responses. Soranno stated “my suffering is insignificant in comparison” and then focused the remaining 45 minutes of her speech on animal rights activism.
