Diane & Ken's Story

The Breathe for Diane team is new in name this year, but has been active for two years and is in support of Diane Trump who has been fighting both lung cancer and breast cancer. This team is being supported from all over the country, by friends, family, former neighbors and friends of family. 

One of those friends of the family is Julie Jacobs. Julie lives with her husband jerry in Wayland, MA and has been very active and generous in supporting our team. Julie’s strength has been there for years because she too has fought cancer and today is leading a normal life.

Julie and Kristin Trump (Diane’s daughter) have known one another for nearly ten years, and at one time taught together in the Wayland, MA school district. It was there that a relation was established and Kristin realized how compassionate and strong Julie was.

This strength, as well as the strength that is currently displayed by Diane has been passed along and Kristin, and she now is very active in her own fundraising for her mom.

Join the Trumps and the Jacobs and raise funds to fight lung cancer with the LUNGe Forward 5K!

We are extremely saddened to say that on December 1, 2014, Diane lost her battle. Diane impacted many with her advocacy efforts and dedication to the mission of Lung Cancer Initiative.
