The Walk for Diane – Diane’s Story
A few times in our lives, we encounter a challenge that changes everything. In 1993, Diane Goodwin was told she had Stage IV breast cancer. Without hesitation she took on the challenge and told the doctors to watch her be the first one to beat it. She became an inspiration, first to her family and then to all who met her and spoke with her. Her love for life and her desire to inspire others never wavered.
As a true disciple of positive thinking, she managed to achieve 16 “good” years with this illness. In August, 2009, she finally succumbed to this disease, but not without first making it clear that the family mission was to continue to find ways to help others. With that in mind, the family of Diane Goodwin joined The Amy Foundation and established The Walk for Diane, the second annual event of The Amy Foundation, to help women identify this disease in its earliest stages when it can be most successfully treated. Statistics show that early detection saves lives!
Funds raised from the Walk for Diane support the mission of The Amy Foundation to provide the cost of screening mammograms and diagnostic ultrasounds at Saint Peter’s University Hospital, Princeton HealthCare System at Plainsboro, and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for women who are without the financial means to obtain these vital screenings for the early detection of breast cancer.
They Walked to honor and remember all those whose lives have been or could be affected by breast cancer. Your Gift Can Do the Same!
