Welcome to Mitchell’s Fund which serves to honor the legacy of Mitchell Bays Turner.
At just three months old, Mitchell was diagnosed with a rare form of Infant Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. After enduring grueling and challenging treatments his entire life, “Mitchie” – as his family affectionately called him – died just weeks after his second birthday. Complications from chemotherapy and antibiotic medications caused both his liver and kidney to fail.
Mitchell’s Fund serves and supports families with children facing life threatening pediatric illnesses. Since 2012, the Charlotte, N.C.-based fund has helped and supported over 60 of these families. When a child is sick, life must go on in many ways which is why Mitchell’s Fund willingly provides some of funds to take care of their housing, utilities, medical, mental health needs, travel and funeral expenses during what is a family’s most stressful season.
