On the 5th April 2018, Mitchell was taken to hospital by his fiancé Bree after complaining of stomach pains. After hours of different doctors and scans, they were told that a couple of tumours had been found in which he was then transferred to Campbelltown hospital. Mitch was sent home to rest and to undertake further scans to which he will then see a specialist.
On Wednesday the 11th of April, just 6 days after presenting to hospital, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer and had to undergo surgery the next day to have most of the tumours removed. Unfortunately, Mitch had been in pain on and off for 6 months beforehand and it had already spread to other places.
Mitch is currently undergoing 9-12 weeks of chemotherapy and as they have found another tumour and some lymph nodes are enlarged, they are thinking of adding another cycle or having another operation, which they will not find out until 8 weeks before their wedding.
Just two weeks into Mitchell's first round of chemo, he was admitted back to hospital as his body is storing the chemicals and making Mitch very ill, due to this the Doctors were undecided whether to go on with the treatment. They are going ahead.
Mitch and his fiancé Bree have a long road ahead of them and we are trying to help this local couple get through this very hard time. With all the medical expenses coming in and Bree being a business owner having to take extended time off work to care and be with Mitchell, we are hoping to help them as much as possible to ease the stress and make sure Mitchell keeps fighting The Big C.
Lets get behind Mitch and not let him walk alone on his battle of a lifetime..
