“Living in Color: A Love Story, In Sickness and In Health” by Mike Murphy is set to be released worldwide on October 12, 2021. This 218-page memoir shares the story of Mike and Margot, from falling in love to Margot’s breast cancer diagnosis, through the ensuing nine-year battle that was marked by compassion and bravery. 

This love story is both beautiful and tragic. In a recent endorsement by author and actress Mariel Hemingway, she describes the delicate balance of tender, happy memories and unflinching honesty about treatments, setbacks, and his own experiences as a caregiver. The book is a wonderful tribute to Margot, including photographs for readers to get a true sense of her incredible personality, as well as a message of hope and resilience to anyone facing difficult times. 

Living in Color: A Love Story, In Sickness and In Health (ISBN: 9780998209463) can be purchased through retailers worldwide, including barnesandnoble.com and Amazon. The paperback retails for $14.95. Wholesale orders are available [email protected]

From the back cover:

Mike Murphy’s dream came true when he found the love of his life. Nine months later, he found a lump in her breast that would change the course of their love story forever. In this moving and honest memoir, Mike tells the story of his wife Margot’s nine-year battle with cancer and the courageous attitude with which she lived each day of her life. He also offers a window into the often-overlooked role of the caregiver, sharing his own struggles with unflinching honesty, humor and insight.

About the author:

Mike Murphy grew up with an alcoholic father and an amazing mother, both of whom he is very grateful for. His father is now 40 years sober, his mother, unfortunately, has gone too early from smoking cigarettes.

Mike was kicked out of school in the 8th grade and many more schools after that, becoming a habitual runaway and juvenile delinquent.  At age 24 he found himself in a 12-step meeting, broke in every way. He was divorced and depressed. At that time, Mike had a 2-year-old daughter that he saw only once a week.  It was at that meeting a friend said to him, “your life is a total mess, but I know someone who may be able to help.”

Subsequently, connections develop when we least expect them.  This led to a meeting with the ‘Mystery Man” as Mike describes in his book “Love Unfiltered” published in 2014.  The mystery man taught Mike a unique way to manifest his dreams.  Before he knew it, his life quickly began to change.  Mike became a very successful automobile dealer in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 35 years.

During that time, it was in those car dealerships where he started teaching others what the Mystery Man had taught him which has since been published in 2018 in The Creation Frequency. We will be talking about manifesting. What does that mean?  How can you apply it in your life?

In 2012 to honor his late wife, Margot, Mike founded the Love from Margot Foundation. It started with a visit with a single mom who also had stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. This was his inspiration to start the Love from Margot Foundation. They provide low-income women, with advanced cancer, the resources they need for their healing and recovery at no expense to the Mountains Of Hope Retreat Center.

Their mission: “We strongly believe that the best way to defeat cancer and other limiting health conditions and addictions is through natural methods. For those that choose natural methods of healing and have limited resources, we sponsor them to undergo treatment protocols at Mountains of Hope holistic healing center, our sister organization in Colombia. By addressing the entire being – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual – we believe everyone can restore themselves back to natural health.”

The Mountains of Hope Retreat Center is also a Wellness Sanctuary, located in Medellin, Colombia, in South America. They offer holistic health solutions to the anxiety, stress, and numerous other challenges posed by the ever-changing world around us. Imagine a place where you can reconnect with your inner self and rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit surrounded by nature. Their unique approach to wellness combines ancient Eastern healing traditions with Western medical research to achieve life-enhancing results.  The Creation Frequency is just one of the many healing protocols that guests can use to heal their body, mind, heart, and soul.

In closing, all proceeds from Living In Color will be donated to the Love from Margot Foundation.
