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 due to complications from chemotherapy and antibiotic medications causing both liver and kidneys to fail.
Mitchell’s Fund supports families with children facing life-threatening pediatric illnesses. When a child is sick, 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 60 families.
