After working for years as a psychotherapist, Diane became particularly interested in the role that attitude, beliefs, and behavior play in health and healing. For the past 20 years, she has studied the architecture and psychology of healing spaces and has worked to design a place that educates and empowers cancer survivors and their caregivers. She is co-founder of the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance and, in 2013, received the Susan Eison Spirit Award from the American Cancer Society for her work on that project. In addition, she has worked as a patient advocate on the state and national levels with the South Carolina Cancer Alliance, National Patient Advocate Foundation and the American Cancer Society. She is married to Dr. W. Larry Gluck, Medical Director of the Cancer Institute of the Greenville Health System. She has two daughters (Kimberly and Jennifer) and four grandchildren.
