Catherine Jordan was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in 1986 by leading ALS doctors, told she would die within five years. She began using medicinal cannabis in 1989, which she credits with halting the progress od the disease and she is now recognized by the ALS Association as one of the longest living ALS patients. In 1996 a threat from an ALS researcher launched Cathy into medical cannabis activism, participating in Journey’s for Justice in Florida and Texas, numerous television interviews and political actions. In 2010 Cathy signed on as one of the two patient plantiffs in the appeal of the DEA’s decision not to reschedule cannabis. She is now President of the Florida Cannabis Action Network (www.flcan.org), working to make medicinal cannabis legal in Florida as well as empowering patients to advocate for themselves . Cathy has a website – www.ALSandCannabis.com and a You Tube video series – www.youtube.com/SurvivingALS
