Diane Moore's passion for helping families is personal, as she lost her 8 year old daughter, Colleen, to Osteosarcoma in 2008. After the Moore family's tragic experience, Diane noticed that there was an alarming lack of psychological and emotional support available in hospitals for children with cancer. Striving for More is dedicated to ensuring that children with cancer and their families receive quality emotional and spiritual support.
