Mitch Arnold

Mitch Arnold

Cellular Therapy, Treatment, Wisconsin

When he was 10 years old, Mitch was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. During three years of treatment, he received 37 units of whole blood and platelets as he went into remission. However, in 2017, Mitch relapsed and received a bone marrow transplant that helped save his life.

Today, Mitch is cancer-free and is making the most of his second chance. He is thankful for the generosity of blood and marrow donors and hopes that new discoveries in research and treatment can help more patients like him beat cancer. 

“If people didn’t donate blood, then I wouldn’t be here today,” says Mitch. “Now, my vision for cancer treatment is to cure kids and adults less aggressively.”
