Board Vice Chair
DIANE ALLEN is the owner of 23rd Street Jewelers in Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach. Cancer profoundly impacted Diane. Her husband, Bryan Axelrod died quickly from pancreatic cancer – one of the deadliest forms of cancer. She soon became familiar with PHASE ONE and all the critical work we do. Diane joined the board in 2013 and personally partnered with PHASE ONE in funding the pancreatic cancer Phase I clinical trial of Dr. Richard Tuli at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Diane proudly created the signature bracelets and pendants “ONE” for the 2014 Gala.
