The Diane B. Sheahan Memorial Fund is a Legacy Project of the Greater Washington Coalition for Cancer Survivors.

Diane Beaudin Sheahan was a community activist who died of ovarian cancer in 1994. During her six-year treatment journey, she became a leader in patient advocacy and the movement for cancer survivors. In her memory, this new project will continue some of the patient and caregiver support functions of the now-closed Greater Washington Coalition for Cancer Survivors.
