Director Statement

We felt Diana Wright had a very important story to tell. Not only in her upbringing and how she funneled her energy from her abusive and difficult past into the fuel that made her a powerful CEO, but also how she uses her same methodical planning and positive outlook to save herself from a cancer death sentence. Is she special or is this something everyone can obtain; not only in our life and career, but in our health. Should we be submissive in the roles we play in our own health? If Diana had been, she would not be alive today. - Greta Valenti & Robin Davey
