Ellyn was the kindest soul, loving wife, mother, daughter and friend. She put up such a battle and is rewarded in heaven with her daughter Caroline. It was on honor to call them both family. Love Patti (Found) and Buddy Clark

Hi this is Drew scheuerman from zeeland Michigan id liked to say i love the true story of the miracle season because its heartwarming, heartfelt, uplifting and inspiring I love this movie but i may not know them the people from the movie but deep down everybody could use a friend because they are the reason that they are there for them, have someone to count on, have someone to trust and have their backs- all you need to do is be encouraging, compassionate, loyal, kind and sweet

See you in resurrection day! God is Good ❤

We just saw THE MIRACLE SEASON: what a heartwarming tribute to Ellyn and her amazing daughter Caroline. ❤❤❤

No question, she was a great lady and showed a ton of courage in her battle with cancer, and dealing with losing Caroline. I watched the story on HBO's Real Sports, and I can't wait to see the movie.
