Mardie is a fighter and the strongest person I know. These past several years, that strength has been challenged in unimaginable ways. She has dealt with these challenges and deep losses with grace, love and a quiet strength that has floored those around her. Mardie is a nurturer and caretaker by nature...and a worker. She got her first job when she was 10 years old painting addresses on curbs. She loves her work and is very passionate about the amazing experiences she has had working in the film/tv industry in many different capacities over the past 25 years and is looking forward to getting back to it as soon as possible.
I know this will not shock you....Mardie’s biggest concern right now is how her diagnosis is affecting the people who care about her. She loves raising a village and supporting her community. I have no doubt we all have a story of Mardie being there for us in our darkest moments or brightening a day with her contagious smile and beautiful blue eyes. It is now our turn to repay the favor and lift Mardie, Dale, Edie and Becky up. Since her diagnosis, my phone has blown up with many people asking what they can do to help. And honestly, helping to eliminate some of the financial burden would take some of the stress off of the situation. Mardie has a long road ahead of her - one she is prepared to fight and win, but the reality is she has to use all of her strength for this battle.
My hope is that by creating this fund, it will allow Mardie and her family to focus their energy on healing her. Despite being in a Union and having good insurance, medical bills are already piling up and she will be unable to work while she is going through treatment. The funds will be used towards medical and cost of living expenses incurred while Mardie is unable to work. If we can lift some of the financial burden from them, I think that would alleviate some of the stress.
