TULSA, Oklahoma -

Santa Claus came to town Friday to visit a very special young man. Jeremiah Mitchell has been on a long road to recovery since an outbreak of meningitis at his Oologah school in March, 2010.

He lost both of his arms and legs, but now, at ten years old, Jeremiah continues to amaze doctors, family, and friends. He has learned to ride a bike with his prosthetic legs, and can write with his upper prosthetics.

To help brighten the holidays - paper products company "Kimberly Clark" treated Jeremiah to $4,000 worth of toys and gifts.

"They keep spoiling us, oh my goodness, they spoil us," said Michaela Mitchell, Jeremiah's mother.

"Jeremiah has made a request though to Santa Claus that he would like, next year, for other children to get toys."

Before they visited Jeremiah at Hamilton Elementary, Kimberly-Clark employees passed out toys to all the kids at Academy Central School.
