Hi! My name is Ashton Marsh. I graduated from Texas A&M in 2016 and I am pursing my passion to work with amputees in the prosthetic field. I started Ashton’s Angels my senior year of college in order to help those who cannot afford prostheses.
At the age of four I was involved in a lawn mower accident that resulted in me losing part of my left foot. As a child I knew this was going to change my life, but little did I know it was just the beginning of a much bigger picture.
Throughout my life I’ve met many amputees who were unfortunately unable to receive prostheses. Whether it was due to insufficient funds, or inability to have insurance due to many reasons. This started to stir something in my heart at a young age, and eventually through lots of prayer and an amazing support system, led to the beginning of Ashton’s Angels.
To say I am blessed is a HUGE understatement.
I have the opportunity to witness God’s work unfold before my eyes as he continually provides for each of our amputees.
God has placed some of the most amazing people in my life, and it is through the hands of others that our amputees have the chance to walk again.
In Jeremiah 29:11 it says, “For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
This verse has really impacted me throughout my life and has always given me hope that God directs our every step.
