Just a tiny flap of pig tissue, but such an influence in Diana’s life. She began by sewing the tissue into heart valves, moved on to engineering a new concept modifying the orifice of the valve, and finally founded a medical device manufacturing company. Her childhood on a farm, with its exposure to incessant hard work and the pain of childhood sexual abuse, instilled in her the strength and determination necessary to conquer a mystifying and debilitating illness, her husband’s attempt to take over her company, and her desires so forceful they pose threats to her very identity. Join Diana as she strives to maintain her audacious grasp on life and learns that wallowing in the mud may be necessary for a time, but staying there is not allowed.

Diana worked with a heart surgeon in London, oversaw production facilities in Holland, and coordinated with a world wide sales force. She bravely shares a segment of her story here so that others might create their own portrait of vitality.Dr. BERNIE DeCOKE grew up in Colorado, where she obtained an MA in Psychology/Guidance & Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado.
