Since April 2020, Mitchell Archer has been in the ICU. Due to an infection that led to acute sepsis. Mitchell developed a clotting disorder, Purpura Fulminans . This clotting disorder led to a decrease of circulation to the hands and feet. Mitchell had to undergo amputations of his hands and bilateral amputations below the knee. He also had to undergo several skin graft surgeries to repair the extensive damage that the sepsis caused. In addition, he suffered from a collapsed lung. The severity of this illness will have Mitchell out of work for several months and will present many challenges for the future. We are hopeful that Mitchell will be a candidate for myoelectric prosthetics which will allow him to gain his independence. This will allow him to get back to doing his everyday activities especially playing with his children Ryan, (4.5 years old) and Hailey (2 years old). These specialized prosthesis are not covered by insurance and are very costly.
Anyone who has met Mitchell will know he is a kind and generous soul. He is the friend you go to when you have something that needs fixing, moving, or just someone dependable at your side. His smile and contagious laugh have always been a beacon of positivity for everyone he meets. His love for his children and his family is undeniable. Despite being in ICU he still prioritized his wife's birthday in April, Mother's Day, his 38th birthday, his daughters 2nd birthday, and his 8th wedding anniversary.
He is a super Dad, Husband, Son, and Brother.
Any donations are greatly appreciated to decrease some of the financial stress the illness has already placed on the family and to obtain prosthesis for both hands and both feet.
