The family, friends, and colleagues of Sister Marie are raising money to support her in the battle against breast cancer. Join us!

Our friend and colleague Sr. Marie Therese Diang, a graduate student in the Department of Educational Research and Policy Studies, has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. Marie is proceeding with treatment as fast as possible, but financially this poses some challenges. Because of this, Marie’s classmates and colleagues are joining forces to raise funds for her treatment.

Marie, a member of the religious order of the Tertiary Sisters of St. Francis, came to the United States from Cameroon as a young leader in the hopes of learning how to brighten the educational futures of children in her country. Her presence at DePaul has challenged each of us to consider our impact as educators upon the world and upon young people we interact with. She has also taught her colleagues and classmates to give thanks to our greatest treasures in life: appreciating our friends, loving our families, challenging ourselves, and staying congruent with what we believe in. She is an incredible woman who has brought joy to each of our hearts, and has maintained a strong influence in our academic careers and professional goals.

Anything you can contribute will go a long way. Our thanks for your support.
