Cancer survivor supported by UC football team

In 2009, Mitch Stone was 11 when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He went through very aggressive treatments at Cincinnati Children’s. During his journey, he was “adopted” by the University of Cincinnati Football team.

From that relationship, the foundation “Mitch’s Mission’ was started. Money raised sends Cincinnati Children’s patients with cancer and blood diseases to summer camp at Camp Joy.

Now 18, Mitch recently started at UC as a freshman where he is majoring in operations management. His goal is to work in hospital administration improving patient care.
