Lois Martin
Hi, I am Lois Martin, a retired Lutheran Pastor, and Musician. I have been diagnosed with CMT for only a few years, but on reflection, I know where my strange symptoms have come from over the years. I feel I have some answers to abiding questions regarding ‘clumsiness’ over the years. My husband and I live in a rural area in central Pennsylvania and together we enjoy traveling, visiting our children and grandchildren. I keep active as I am able but have had to give up tennis, skiing, playing the organ, and a few other physical activities. I look forward to meeting others with CMT and to be able to continue learning and remain engaged with others.
