My friend and OC survivor Dianne participates in the Survivor Teaching Student program sponsored by OCNA. She was featured in an article in the Star-Telegram , Dallas/Fort Worth. I first met Dianne at the LiveStrong Summit in Austin in 2006 she is a wonderful OC advocate and will be attending the OCNA Conference in DC in July. Thanks Dianne for all you do to raise awareness.
