Just received from her husband:
I am sad to tell you that Diane passed away this evening (Sunday March 4) after a long and valiant battle with cancer. Funeral arrangements are pending. Please remember her in your prayers.
All I can add is that Diane was a LADY. We joined this forum around the same time in 2009 with the same diagnosis of UPSC. She cared about all of us. She fought cancer with grace enduring some very rough treatments including HIPEC and recent lung repair surgery. She often wrote privately to me worried that posting on the board would scare some of us. She was very kind and thoughtful. I just knew her from online chats. We had a common love of kayaking and would talk of taking virtual trips together, buying ice cream cones at the Dairy Queen we constructed along the stream where we took our virtual trips.
I am very sad that we have lost this beautiful sister. She's up there with Linda now!!!
