No longer FERTILE, Diana makes light of getting older and using humor to cope with being a breast cancer survivor.

“When my Reconstruction Surgeon asked me if I wanted to go up a cup size or two I told him, ‘let me put it this way, when I fly I want to be the flotation device!’ “

Diana studied improv comedy in “off the wall” classes with classmate Robin Williams (whom she also dated).
