Fighting for Marsha Mudge
Description
Fighting for Marsha Mudge: My heart is aching, my tears are flowing for a dear friend who has endured more in the past couple of years than you can imagine. She's received news that no one ever wants to hear, she is possibly about to tackle a huge fight with an ugly disease. She's taken care of her husband, she's lost her husband, she's been strong for her boys, she's loved on my kids(and so many others) daily, she's showed strength when her world was collapsing and now she's having to fight for herself. It doesn't seem fair, it's scary, it's unknown, it's having to lean on God and genuinely have faith to get through what's to come. I don't understand it, I guess I never will but I'm trusting God. If you could share your prayers, say an extra for her & her two boys, He knows who she is. May God give her the strength and comfort to trust His plan and take one day at a time! ..."for when I am weak, He is strong." I love you sweet girl & I'm gonna fight with you!

Ellen please pick Marsha. She lost her husband last year and is now fighting for her life from a very aggressive Cancer.
She cares so much about others, especially children.  She was actually using her platform this weekend to raise money for another cancer fighter in our community, a 2 month old baby girl with leukemia. Marsha puts everyone before herself and even with all she is enduring, has a smile everytime I see her.
Marsha and her 2 little boys need some joy and as a fan of your show, Ive never seen anyone spread as much joy as you! Thank you for taking the time to consider Marsha!

Ellen...if anyone ever needed the love and laughs you have to give this is your girl. Her spirit is PHENOMENAL, she is brave, funny and strong. No one should have to endure what she has faced and she is doing it with grace, humor and love. Her boys are devoted to her and she is simply the perfect mother. Please, please, please look into her story. Love you, love Marsha. Grateful in advance for your consideration. #mudgestrong

Marsha has been through more in the last 2 years than anyone should have to go through in a lifetime.  Through it all, she has remained so positive for two of the loves of her life, Tanner age 5 and Jackson age 3.  She quit her job as a Labor & Delivery nurse after her husband suffered a stroke, and took a less paying job as a school nurse in order to have the same schedule and help her husband who was a coach.  Marsha is one incredible lady who will do whatever it takes to see to it that she is able to raise her boys.

There are some parts of her story missing that help paint the picture of what an amazing woman Marsha is. He husband a "healthy" football coach had an out of nowhere stroke several years ago that required her to care for him as her own child while extremely pregnant with her second son. They got thru it, together and came out stronger. A year almost to the day she woke up, he never did. She still put on a brave face for their 2 very young boys. She is a school nurse at an elementary school and so she not only loves her 2 boys but several hundred children in the community. She continues to give back to her community which is why her community is only too happy to giveback to her. Ellennation please join the 2river town of new braunfels tx in being #mudgestrong for an amazing selfless woman.

Her husband had a stroke...she took care of him & nursed him back to health...he then died in his sleep...a year later, this sweet Mommy is diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer that has spread through her body.  Marsha is precious, hilarious, kind, and deserving of a special trip to your show!  She and her two little boys have been through way too much in this lifetime already.

Marsha has a gravitational force all of her own. Her genuine honesty, energy, go-the-extra-mile above-and-beyond work ethic, kick-*** no b.s. attitude drew me to her. She was the only coworker I ever opened up to with such vulnerability. She was always so supportive and nonjudgmental. No matter what was going on in her life, she set it aside and put her patients and the unit first. She doesn't know the meaning of the words quit, give up, slow down. She is such a rare gem and I miss working along side her and ruling the day. If anyone is destined to overcome - it's Marsha.

EllenNation, PLEASE consider helping our Marsha Mudge, from New Braunfels, TX. Her husband was a football coach who had a sudden stroke a few years ago, so she quit her labor & delivery job to take a position as an elementary school nurse (for a lot less money) so she could more easily care for him while pregnant with her second child. They got thru it and, together, came out stronger. A year later he died in his sleep. She was brave face for their 2 very young boys. However, she has now been diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer which is moving throughout her body, and is currently undergoing her 2nd round of Chemo treatments, and FIGHTING! She is a school nurse at an elementary school and not only loves her 2 boys, but several hundred children in the community. She continues to give back to her community, which is why her community wants to give back to her. Ellennation, please join New Braunfels, TX in being #mudgestrong for this amazing, selfless woman.

Marsha and I went to high school together. We were in different grades but I knew who she was. I remember her always having a smile on her face. I had recently discovered what her and her family have and are going through and my heart goes out to them. I am married with children myself and one of my fears is to lose my husband. Not only has this happened to Marsha but now she is fighting for her life, for herself and her boys. She is so strong and courageous! Still when I see pictures and videos of her now, I see that smiling face that I remember from school. It would be so awesome for Marsha to get the opportunity to go on the Ellen show and tell her story. To be encouragement to others in her situation. So she can share that smile with so many others!

This elementary school teacher has the town of New Braunfels' support as I've never seen before.  Her husband passed away recently and now she is fighting for her life.  her sons are young and she stays focused and positive on the outside. Won't everyone say a prayer for this warrior?  She shaved her head last weekend at a fundraiser and started crying.  Please help bring awareness to someone who has given so much to others.

Ellen, the outpouring of compassion and assistance has been overwhelming for this precious lady who is in a critical state and yet she is ever hopeful for a brighter future with her little boys.  Losing her husband recently was bad enough but now fearing her children will lose their mother as well is the worst hand to be dealt.  You will not regret having her on your show.

Words cannot express the way our community has come together for the sweet young woman, who is full of Grace & kindness.  She is an inspiration to us all.  Even in her lowest of lows, SHE is lifting OTHERS up!  It's amazing.  She continues to give all of us Hope & a reason to be on this planet.  She has touched so many peoples lives, and has no idea the impact she has and is continuing to make.  Truly an inspiring story & one that would be well received by the public.  I encourage you, Ellen, to have her on your show.  She's witty, funny, silly, strong, an awesome mama, the list goes on & on.  Ellen - i promise YOU will be touched by her and so will everyone watching your show!!!

Our community has suffered the floods, negative attention brought to her school, and now with the news of our community school nurse/mom/daughter. This town is pulling together for this young mom and praying for a miracle. We could surely use a ray of light cast upon us. I hope you get to see Ellen and share in her laughter. #mudgestrong

Marsha has been through more than anyone I know.  She lost her husband, the family had a terrible stomach virus and her husband got it.  He was throwing up so badly that he ended up with an anurism.  He past away. He was a football coach at our local high school.  She is a nurse at a local elementary school.  Together they have two young boys.  Now she has been diagnosised with an aggressive cancer.  The community has pulled together for her.  She is staying positive through all of this and we all know it is hard for her.  She has put on a brave face for her boys.  Please let her be on your show.  She is an amazing woman who gives her all to her community and her family.  She is a special person. Thank you.  Tami Taha

This amazing woman nursed my son through an illness neither one of us understood very well.  In nursing him, she nursed me as well with an abundance of patience, understanding and consistently positive (and funny) communication.  She's had the worst year and a half I can imagine and yet she still smiles for the sake of others.  Her spirit is infectious and the world is a better place with her in it.  She is Mudge Strong!

In the small time I have know Marsha there has not been a time that she has not come across in a positive manner.  She is upbeat and strong and has a great faith.   The fact this story has so many followers just proves that there are miracles occurring everyday and the strong prayers are a testament to her survival and determination.  I am extremely humbled by her tenacity for living. She would be a great guest on the Ellen show.

#mudgestrong My heart goes out to Her, She is beautiful and so are Her Children.  I cannot imagine this at all, I am crying as I write this because i am trying to think "what i would do".......You have my vote, i send prayers and strength for Her during this journey.  I so wish that we could have a social group of REAL pll, going through REAL problems that could all connect in some way to HELP each other more, be a support to each other....DONT GO IT ALONE, kind of thinking, where pll could talk about what they are going through and others can help and circle goes.  It just seems to me that it would be a great way to start CHANGE in this world.  MUCH LOVE ALWAYS  I believe that this strong, courageous Mother needs OUR help.  Make a change in someone else's life today!
