The family and friends of Cathy Martorello are uniting to help with her battle against an inoperable brain tumor called Oligodendroglioma.

Cathy Martorello was born on June 29, 1966. She has two beautiful young boys, Ramsey and Carter and a very supportive husband, Jim. They are her entire life.
Cathy has a passion for helping women better their lives. She began her career working at a battered women’s shelter in Honolulu, Hawaii, helping women to get their lives back on track and providing them with the tools they need to be able to make their world a better place. Once she moved to the East Coast she took a position at the women’s shelter in New London, Connecticut. In an effort to spend more time with her children, and still help women improve their lives, she opened a women’s gym in Griswold, CT. A little less than a year ago Cathy was diagnosed with a brain cancer called an Oligodendroglioma. Since her diagnosis, Cathy has had to sell her gym because she is not able to focus enough to run the business, and is no longer able to drive given the number of seizures she experiences throughout the day. Now uninsured, we are trying to raise money for her treatments.

Cathy’s main focus is quality of life, and spending every minute she has with her two children.

I hope she will be with us as long as possible, but most importantly with her children, as the vibrant, full of life mother they know and love.
