Mitchell's Journey has supported our family in ways only they could understand and conceive. They have a unique relationship with those they assist because they have experienced the same battles and the same types of hardships. Although research is necessary it will not address the needs of our son now, or restore his ability to walk, ever. We see millions of dollars raised for this cause but had never experience any relief from it in the day to day demands this disability requires. Mitchell's Journey has served the needs of our son through financial assistance that simply doesn't exist elsewhere. They have helped provide the care taking tools and equipment that nobody else can offer, or seems willing to.

Because of Mitchell's Journey, some of our prayers were answered. A great deal of our burden was lifted. Our son has directly benefited and felt joy because of the kindness and support from Mitchell's Journey. We're extremely grateful to those who have helped make it possible. We're sincerely grateful for their friendship and the life of their sweet son. Because of Mitchel's journey, families like ours are feeling loved and supported not only by the Jones family, but also by the community that has rallied around them.

As a spiritual warrior and seeker, I have usually been able to find the light, but my son, Desmond’s medical difficulties have tested this. It was the first time in our medical journey that I felt lost and hopeless and when I Mitchell’s Journey I found my God’s strength and my purpose was re-ignited.

God has given Christopher the ability to speak to others through his words. To take his personal nightmare and use it to change the lives of so many around the world.

Not one day goes by that Mitchell and family are not in my thoughts and are being used to buoy my spirits. I have sat in the ER holding my baby, searching for the latest post to give me strength and gratitude. I have told those around me that Christopher and Natalie would give anything for the opportunity to sit in another ER with their son on their chest. Because of their willingness to share their heart and life with us, I am able to continue.

Because they made the decision to reach out and share, my journey is one with purpose and direction and I know that no matter what comes down the road I will continue to walk because they are.

Mitchell's Journey, quite simply, is the most incredible collection of words associated with the life and journey of a father as he documents the loss of his child as a result of a terminal illness.  From the first word of each entry to the last, the vivid depth of each entry simply touches every fiber of your being.  As a father who has lost a child myself, I am at once transformed so closely into the life of Mitchell and those fortunate enough to have known him.  Truly striking.
