Fund Love was founded by Diane O. Zaccagnino, a businesswoman, 'dream-catcher', artist, community volunteer, cancer 'warrior', and most of all a Sister to anyone in need. Diane died in 2015, more than five years after being diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a lethal form of brain cancer.
After a difficult hospital stay, in 2015, Diane became frustrated with her Family, as they encouraged her to rest and recover. She told them that she needed to work because there were so many people to help. Weeks later, Fund Love was launched to spread love and help patients and families throughout the cancer community, starting with its inaugural campaign, I AM MORE THAN CANCER.
