Diane's Dream Chairty was founded in memory of Diane Hernandez of Raleigh, NC. Diane was a beautiful woman inside and out. She selflessly made everyone feel special and included. She liked butterflies, turtles, reading, playing Scrabble and painting. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend to so many. She was always there to lend an ear and offer a helpful hand. She was loving and kind.
In 2006, Diane was diagnosed with leukemia. Through her treatment, she always focused on the positive, even when she felt her worst. In May of 2014, Diane lost her battle with leukemia. Toward the end of her bout, she imagined playing a part in finding cures for blood cancer. Her belief in a cure and desire to overcome spilled over to those closest to her.
Her husband, Tony Hernandez, founded Diane's Dream Charity in her honor to make her dream a reality. Diane's Dream Charity's mission is to raise money and awareness for blood cancers, ultimately working to improve treatments and find cures.
