Mitchell’s Fund Helps Sick Children and their Families.
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 due to complications from chemotherapy and antibiotic medications.
Mitchell’s Fund supports sick children and their families. When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, the family’s world stops; but the demands around them continue. Mitchell’s Fund willingly provides funds to assist families with housing, utilities, medical and mental health needs and travel and funeral expenses. Since 2012, the Charlotte, North Carolina, based fund has helped over 260 families.
