Diagnosed with ALS, a chronic neurodegenerative disease, Mitchell faced the illness with courage and dignity. ALS significantly shortens life expectancy and affects physical functions, leading to symptoms like difficulty swallowing, breathing problems, and muscle wasting. From 2019 onwards, Mitchell relied on a wheelchair, demonstrating his resilience and determination in the face of adversity.

The statement from his family highlighted the “series of terrible challenges” Mitchell endured due to ALS over five and a half years. Despite the difficulties, he embraced life’s challenges with grace and a profound appreciation for life, living by the principle that every day is a gift and that we are never alone.
