In Memory of Diane “Dee” Splitstone

February 03,2016

Team PHenomenal Hope would like to thank the generous family and friends of Diane “Dee” Splitstone, who passed away from pulmonary hypertension on December 8, 2015, peacefully at her home.

Dee was born November 26, 1942 in Cleveland, Ohio, and was a loving wife of Douglas Splitstone, and mother of Don and his wife Stacy, and Heather with her husband Douglas, and enjoyed four loving grandchildren. She graduated from Miami University with a Bachelor of Science in education, and worked as teacher in the Gateway and Franklin School Districts for 17 years. She was a 15-year survivor of a matched, unrelated donor stem cell transplant for Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia (CMML), and served as a 10-year First Connection volunteer with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She gave comfort and hope to more than 80 newly diagnosed CMML patients throughout the United States and Canada.

Dee was an incredible woman, with generosity and a kindness and light that continues to be reflected through her family and those whom she touched.

We greatly appreciate the generous donations from her family and friends to support Team PHenomenal Hope’s contributions helping PH patients through research.
