CATHY MARTINEZ

This month we welcome Cathy Martinez, President of the Autism Family Network

Cathy has been married to her husband, Cesar, for 15 years. They have four children, one at UNL, one at Pius, one each at St. John’s and Mickle, plus operating a daycare Home II, keeping her days and nights busy!!

As Cathy’s youngest son, Jake, was diagnosed with classic autism in 2005 at the age of 24 months her passion became improving the lives of those with autism. Cathy became president of the Autism Family Network in Lincoln where she offers support groups, recreational activities, resources!! Sometimes a shoulder to cry on is needed, which Cathy always has ready for anyone.

Many of us personally know people with autism and realize what we’ve received from their friendship and how our quality of life improved. Cathy will open the floor for questions at the end of her presentation.
