Today’s Born To Talk Radio Show Podcast featured Author and Philanthropist, Mike Murphy.
Mike and Margot
As you will hear, Mike Murphy is a passionate man. He met the love of his life, Margot, at work. They were both married at the time, but soon realized that they had a connection that could not be ignored. After divorcing, they began their deep love for one another. Sadly, what was to be a lifetime together ended when Margot was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. It was a 9-year battle. Mike was her advocate and caregiver. He said, one of the things he learned from Margot, was that she “stared death in the face.” It was those life lessons, that give Mike the courage to write. He found old journals and blogs that Margot had written and found comfort in reading them for as far back as a young girl right through her battle with cancer.
In Living Color A Love Story in Sickness and in Health.
While he finished the book in late 2015, it wasn’t until right now, that he decided to publish it. He learned that he need to be vulnerable.
Mike tells the story of their relationship. He talks about growing past the obstacles in its path thanks to the love and the willingness to work toward emotional maturity. Margot taught him the true meaning of love, which is compassion and forgiveness.
Here is the link to his book.
Subsequently, he wanted to start a Foundation to help unserved women, who have little access to care or the affordability of care. That was the beginning of the Love from Margot Foundation.
The Love from Margot Foundation.
The Love from Margot Foundation envisions a world in which those who fall sick are never alone, never forced to make a medical decision based on economic factors, and never lose their dignity while battling to survive their illness. This vision includes the empowerment of the sick to make all of the difficult decisions that come with facing a serious illness with a healthy heart and a healthy soul. You can donate to his foundation here.
