After working as a pharmacist for 25 years, I learned I have Charcot-Marie-Tooth neuromuscular disorder. Now, I am able to enjoy my “early retirement” and have more time for photography.

As a photographer, I try to capture scenes, which I wish to remember either the beauty or the happiness they bring to me.

After my diagnosis, I founded the Upstate NY CMT group to share information, resources, and hope with others dealing with this challenging neuromuscular disorder. In addition to raising awareness of CMT, I have been looking for fundraising opportunities.

So, I was very fortunate to meet with Jackie & Susan of Art de Cure at The Endocrine Group. I’m excited for this opportunity to be part of CPO’s Art de Cure gallery benefiting the CMTA’s STAR (Strategy To Accelerate Research) initiative, and the new gallery at Dr. Lev Barat’s office to benefit the Ronald McDonald House.
