Personal Information

Diana Grant Dyer grew up in Toledo, Ohio. Her childhood cancer (neuroblastoma) was treated at The Toledo Hospital, Toledo, Ohio, and her two breast cancers were treated at Evanston Hospital, Evanston, Illinois, and The University of Michigan's Comprehensive Cancer Center, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Diana resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with her husband and grand-dog. Diana and her husband have two grown sons, both of whom have kind hearts, extremely interesting ideas, confidence experimenting with plus enjoying food and cooking, and can easily engage in thought-provoking conversations.

Diana has been an avid "birder" since childhood and has enjoyed birding in Alaska, Mexico, Scotland, New Zealand, and many locations in between. During spring 2007, she was fortunate to finally visit the Platte River in Nebraska to see (and hear!) the spring migration of sandhill cranes plus SE Arizona to experience the thrill of seeing the wide variety of hummingbirds that live in that beautiful part of the country. She still plans to get to Scotland’s Shetland Islands for both the birds and the Shetland Folk Festival, as someday (maybe soon!) she’ll get her bow restrung and get back to playing her fiddle again.
