Jo Ann Longoria
I live in El Paso, Texas with my husband Daniel, daughter Olivia and our two Labradors. El Paso has been our home for 20 years, and we definitely love the desert Southwest. My mother had symptoms of CMT but no diagnosis. When I was diagnosed at age 12, it solved a medical mystery for my mother and her relatives! From that day forward, I learned to cope with and manage this virtually unknown disease. My daughter Olivia also has CMT1A and has challenged herself to live life to its fullest! Today, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I am thankful for my blessings.
