Carol Aruffo

Branch Leader Picture
Carol learned of CMT when her daughter was diagnosed in 2007. They are not genetically related, so they were unfamiliar with the disease. There was much to understand, and she and her husband felt overwhelmed. They became members of the CMTA and found the meetings were very valuable to them for not only information, but also for support and sharing ideas and experiences that family members so desperately need. Hoping to give back and continue the learning and support process, Carol has taken on a lead role in the branch. Carol lives in Chadds Ford, PA with her husband, daughter and son. Carol spent her career in Human Resources and recently became a substitute teacher. She enjoys cooking, golf and spending time at the shore in the summer with family and a good book!

Ashley joined the CMTA as a branch leader shortly after her son’s diagnosis to help raise awareness and provide support to other members of the CMT community.
