My Story

Mitchell, AKA Mitchman was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) at the age of four. Despite losing 2/3 of his leg to cancer, nothing seems to slow him down. With the use of a prosthetic, Mitch keeps himself active by playing sports, riding his scooter and doing tricks on his trampoline. In his quite time, Mitch loves to read chapter books, watch Star Wars episodes I-IV weekly, and go camping and fishing with his brother, Devin and his dad and mom. Mitch and his family are grateful to have a great group of pediatric specialists right in Atlanta. Their experience was like having an extended family. "We walked through our home and into a new family addition. We spent a great amount of time in the hospital room during Mitch's treatment. The doctors, nurses and staff treated Mitch and our family with such kindness and professionalism. They made the best out of a scary, life-threatening situation." Mitch is in remission and continues to press forward. His family gives great praise to God for Mitch's good health and appreciates the hard work and dedication to all at CHOA, ALFAC Cancer Center whom played an important role in Mitch's battle. Mitch Camp and his brother, Devin are participates in this year, St Baldrick's as shavees.
