Cathy is a Respiratory therapist at Forbes Regional Hospital, Allegheny Health Network, in Pttsburgh, Pennsylvania. Cathy worked in the Neonatal ICU for 12 years in Ohio before moving to Pittsburgh. She graduated in 2015 with a Degree in Business Administration.
Working with her husband, Pastor Phillip Battle Jr., Cathy is active in the community through their
ministry, located in the Hill District of Pittsburgh. She believes that one who has been blessed in life
should help and encourage less fortunate people, especially families with children and seniors that are
living on the fringes of society.
Cathy and her husband started the Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank in 2012 after learning that 1 in 3
American families struggle to provide diapers for their babies. Her mission is to raise the public’s awareness of the diaper crisis throughout Western Pennsylvania, ensuring that every child and senior citizen has an adequate supply of diapers. Cathy and her husband have two children and seven grandchildren.
