Cathy was born in Brooklyn, NY - 8/1/1960. She attended Queen College for a year then transferred to University of New York in Albany, NY. Cathy enjoyed traveling as much as possible before her stroke in 2010. Cathy is also an artist. After being in a nursing home from 2010 to March 4, 2015, Cathy moved to Lawrenceville, GA into a home where she has been active in the community as she has been going through some intensive rehabilitation which she did not receive in the nursing home.. Cathy's right side has been severely damaged from the stroke. She laid in the hospital bed all day, every day while in the nursing home. Atrophy had set in so bad that her right leg was unable to bend at the knee at the time of her move. Within 2 months after moving to Lawrenceville, she is sitting in a wheelchair or her recliner for at least 7-10 each day. In Cathy's 4th month of being out of the nursing home, she can stand with the assistance of her physical therapist. Lynn Robinette refers to Cathy as our "Miracle Lady".
