MEET THE FOUNDER:


Diane Trivelli, was born and raised in Somerset, NJ.   She moved to Coral Springs, FL in 1986.  
Diane married Bill Anacker in 1987 and lived in Cooper City.   On December 28, 1989, Diane gave birth to 
Arielle Corinne Anacker.   When Arielle was two, the couple divorced.   In 1992, Diane moved back to 
Coral Springs with Arielle and married Ugo Trivelli.   The couple had two sons, Michael and Andrew,   
moved to Coconut Creek in 1995 and lived in the "Butterfly Capital of the World" and the "48th Best Place to Live" until the couple divorced and sold their home in 2015.

In 1997, when Arielle was 7, Michael was 3 and Andrew was 16 months old, Arielle was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma.   For more than three years, Arielle and Diane commuted back and forth to Maryland so Arielle could be treated at the National Institutes of Health.   It was a blessing that Diane's husband Ugo, parents Allen and Bunny Gershowitz and sister Joanie Mintz were all able to help raise Michael and Andrew while Diane and Arielle were away.   Arielle's paternal family in Maryland embraced Arielle and Diane, assisting them with transportation, home-cooked meals and providing them with home away from home love and support.   Diane will always be grateful for their all of their love and support.

It was a very difficult time for the Anacker/Trivelli families.   Arielle's treatment and care became increasingly expensive and the couple found it difficult to pay their bills.  Diane opened up a trust fund in Arielle's name and Diane's family, friends and the community came together to raise money in order to help pay for Arielle's medical and travel expenses.  Tragically, the cancer was too aggressive and Arielle passed away on January 19, 2001 at age 11.   Before Arielle passed away, Diane promised Arielle that she would open a foundation to help needy pediatric cancer families pay their bills and raise money for research to find a cure for Ewing's Sarcoma.   

After Arielle passed away, Diane concentrated on raising her two sons, Michael and Andrew. She became an active volunteer at Tradewinds Elementary School and Temple Beth Orr in Coral Springs.  Diane served on the PTA Board and numerous committees at the temple.  In May of 2004, Diane was appointed as Music Chair under Cantor Susan Weiss at the temple.   Diane retired from that position in January of 2011.   Diane sat on the Board of One Planet United, a non profit organization that promotes peace and unity among all people. Diane was also a board member in her community and served as the President of Parkwood VI for 4 1/2 years.  In 2009, Diane organized, formed and incorporated the Arielle Anacker Cancer Foundation and received IRS approved 501(c)(3) status on June 16, 2010.   Diane serves as President and Treasurer of the Arielle Anacker Cancer Foundation.  

Diane is a professional singer and a lepidopterist (studies butterflies and raises them naturally).  
Many people know Diane as the "Butterfly Lady"!   

In 2016, Diane created her stage name as BflyLadyDi and recorded a song for all people affected by cancer, called "Just Never Give Up (The Cancer Fight Song)".  Vince Broomfield (Diane's life partner), Diane and Michael Trivelli (Diane's son) co-wrote the song.  Diane and Vince collaborated on the creation of the YouTube video for the song as well.   All proceeds from the download of the song benefit Arielle Anacker Cancer Foundation.
