Our Warrior Son

by Team Mitchell




The Mitchell Thorp Foundation (MTF), a public 501(c)(3) located in San Diego County, CA, was established in 2009 in Brad and Beth Thorp’s son’s memory to bring relief, hope, and a sense of normalcy to families who face the heartbreaking journey of caring for a critically ill child. Our mission is to support families whose children suffer from life-threatening illnesses, diseases, and disorders, by providing financial and emotional resources to their desperate situation.

With the recent COVID-19 crisis, we have seen countless families with critically ill children have been hit with an added emergency: loss of income. Our greatest concern for these families is that they continue to have access to essentials including a roof overhead, food on the table, and paid utilities. MTF has a long history of providing support for children and families, that have been hit the hardest by critical medical condition with their child. We have recently directed funds to provide emergency Mini-Grants for essentials, including food, shelter, utilities.
