Founder, President & Executive Director
Diane has more than 20 years of experience working for major telecommunications companies as a Business Analyst and more recently as a Project Manager. In June of 2008 her family’s life was tragically turned upside down when their 9 year old daughter, Colleen died of Osteosarcoma (a form of bone cancer). During Colleen’s 9 month battle with this disease, the family had Colleen cared for at three different hospitals and saw distinctly different levels of care in the area of emotional and spiritual support for children and their families. After Colleen died, thoughts of children struggling with life threatening and terminal cancers without proper emotional and spiritual support continued to haunt Diane. In October, Diane made the decision to research the issue more fully which led to the decision to create Striving for More and dedicate her life to its work.
