The success of her first book, Women Put Yourselves First And Be Happier, landed the attention of several media outlets on the positive impact brought by rising author CaDori. After being featured in numerous radio shows, blog articles, and other major publications, the inspirational book writer is again ready to sweep readers off their feet this November 15, 2020, with the release of her new and powerful book, Ladies Love Yourself First That’s Happiness.
Cathy Marshall is a rising inspirational author touching the hearts of many people through her powerful words. She is better known as CaDori, a nickname she coined by combining her name, her mother’s name, Doris, and her late son’s name, Dougie. A natural-born leader with a giving spirit, she is currently at the forefront in giving back to the community through her incredible charitable endeavors and powerful books.
Having experienced homelessness and joblessness before becoming a professional nurse, the mother of five had no choice but to depend on good-hearted people and her faith in God for survival. With hard work and heaven’s grace, she pulled through it all. Today, she seeks to give back to the community through the non-profit charity CaDori Helping Hands, which she founded in 2017. She has donated baby supplies, cleaning supplies, personal care items, and school supplies to a local shelter for the people displaced by Hurricane Harvey. She has also held a feeding program for the victims. In September 2020, her charity gave away winter coats and holiday food such as Thanksgiving turkeys and hams for those in need.
On top of this, CaDori also founded Dougie’s Kids, Inc., a charitable organization dedicated to helping and ensuring children’s well-being throughout the United States. The charity was named after and inspired by Cathy’s oldest son, Bobby Denerio Marshall “Dougie” Brown, who passed away from a motorcycle accident in 2010. Dougie loved children and mentored many when he was still alive. With that in mind, the organization has helped schools, shelters, and even awarded scholarships, which have changed many children’s lives.
CaDori is also an entrepreneur by heart. She manages I Love Me apparel and CaDori Helping Hands merchandise. But on top of it all, her passion for writing keeps her shining even more. The philanthropist-entrepreneur is a quickly rising author who champions inspiring and motivating women to put themselves first before anything else. She has also shared her incredible cooking skills and recipes through her cookbook. From all of these, she became the talk of the media. From radio shows, magazines, and blogs such as eTrade Wire, Interrupted Blogs, Plaid for Women Dallas, Urban Grandstand Magazine, Kontrol Magazine, The Ladiez Room Radio, The Covert Report, and many more. She was also a panelist at the State of the Black Woman panel discussion in Texas.
This past September, she gave away hundreds of laptop computers to children in need and advocated for suicide prevention. In October, she assisted women in need of mammograms through The Rose in Houston. Today, CaDori is most excited about her latest book, Ladies Love Yourself First That’s Happiness, set to be released on November 15, 2020. November is also the month for her charity to give away turkey and ham for thanksgiving.
CaDori hopes to impact more lives through her books and charitable projects. She hopes to be a reminder for others that they are not alone in this world and that there is always help and resources available to improve their lives in one way or another.
