“Art took his pain and turned it into purpose.”
About the Speaker
At the age of 6, Art Mitch was diagnosed with an eye disease called Keratoconus. Keratoconus is an eye disease that presses on your pupil causing blurriness to your vision. When most children’s only concern at that age was playing, he was trying to make sure he could see the world as normal. Growing up with this disease was not an easy task. Art Mitch dealt with being bullied because nobody knew of this disease that he was dealing with. As the years passed he was introduced to a procedure that could possibly help his vision called Corneal Transplants. Art Mitch had 7 eye surgeries to correct his vision.
Art took his pain and turned it into purpose. For nearly a decade Art’s passion for working with the youth increased tremendously. He has worked with various organizations helping give youth direction and support as they accomplished their goals.
