Help more childhood cancer patients become childhood cancer survivors
Mitchel was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (a cancerous tumor that develops from nerve tissue) at just three years old. After battling his first cancer he was hit hard with another cancer nine years later. "This was a hard blow to us all," said Mary, Mitchel’s mom.
Mitchel received all his treatment in New York at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which is far from his Oklahoma home. The family has traveled to New York countless times and “it would have been impossible without the financial assistance we received from the NCCS,” said Mary. “Dealing with doctors and hospitals can be very stressful, however, the NCCS is always very helpful and the process is stress free. We have been very fortunate to have The National Children’s Cancer Society helping us along the way of this long journey. Our case manager has been so kind and has always made sure we are taken care of. "
Mitchel has battled his cancer for many years and continues to fight every day. "We appreciate the generous donations of others to help families like ours,” said Mary.
