The Imagine Project is a soulful, coffee-table storybook that features the extraordinary stories of ordinary people from across the United States. Imagine life. Imagine courage. Imagine the possibilities.
This beautiful booktells us how ordinary people — neighbors, teachers, farmers, soldiers, athletes — faced potentially devastating life challenges, rising above all odds to live lives of hope, love, strength and courage. Their stories reveal that what makes us human is our ability to rise after we fall, our unlimited potential for personal growth, and our deep capacity for love and compassion.
“Imagine…a world where kindness and compassion are not the exception, but the norm.”
Dianne was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She holds a Master’s in Nursing from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, and worked as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse for fifteen years.
Shortly after her daughter was born 14 weeks premature, she began working in mental health, helping families with premature infants deal with the traumatic effects of early birth. During her years of speaking to preemie parents and health care providers all over the United States, Dianne met countless individuals who told touching stories of strength, perseverance, kindness, and hope. These stories affected her so much that she wanted to capture and share them, firmly believing that the extraordinary stories of ordinary people would touch others too.
Slowly, the idea for The Imagine Project grew far beyond capturing the tenacity of preemie parents to include the struggles and challenges of people from all walks of life. The Imagine Project hopes to effect change by promoting compassion and respect for our fellow human beings, whatever their plight.
