Dream Team: Welcome
Diane Thorne was diagnosed with Stage I Breast Cancer December 2010 at age 48. She had no family history. Thanks to the efforts of early detection by mammography, the cancer was spotted in her routine annual mammogram.
She completed her cancer treatment in 2011, and attributes her amazing recovery to her faith, positive attitude, and determination to be CURED. She received immeasurable support from her loving husband of 30 years (who accompanied her to every doctor appointment throughout her journey), and the prayers from many friends and family.
She is now 1 year cancer free and enjoying life as an advocate promoting early breast cancer screening for all women. A special thanks, to Coach Walker and all of the young men who played such outstanding games, to honor a survivor of breast cancer.
