One of the American Cancer Society’s Tributes of Hope is Dian Snowden. Dian is a retired psychotherapist and has lived in Natchitoches for 48 years. Dian was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. While celebrating five years of being cancer free, cancer returned in the same breast. She had a radical mastectomy and then Fraser, her husband was diagnosed with bladder cancer, thankfully with no metastasis. Ten years later, Dian was diagnosed with lung cancer and like 25% of women with lung cancer, she never smoked.
“Early detection is key” she said. As a cancer thriver, she is grateful to the American Cancer Society and the profound difference they have made in research, treatment, and services provided.
