What is Mito?

Imagine living life on a low battery

that can’t
be charged

Mitochondrial Disease or ‘Mito’ is a genetic disorder affecting the mitochondria – the ‘battery packs’ in our cells. When they fail to produce enough energy, damage occurs – especially to the major organs.

Mitochondrial Disease Symptoms

Mito is the most common genetic condition, is progressive and can be life-limiting. Currently there is no treatment or cure.

Why does Mito Matter to Millions?

Many common conditions also involve mitochondrial damage. Research into mito could bring hope to so many – not just those with mitochondrial disease. 
Mito Heroes - Mitochondrial Disease Supporters

Support Us

We need 
Mito Heroes.

It takes a sprinkling of courage to
support a lesser known cause.

That’s just one of the reasons why
we call our fabulous supporters our
Mito Heroes’. We simply couldn’t do
what we do … without your help.

Families and individuals affected by mito can often feel very isolated and alone in facing this debilitating and little-understood illness. Just a little support can go a very long way to help them feel that people care.

Please be a Mito Hero right now by checking out what you might do to help.

Our Missions

Get behind an individual mission

or the charity
as a whole

… it’s all the same cause.

We’re a network of missions, under one umbrella. Empowering those affected to make a positive difference with a person-centred campaign.

Individually making a local impact. Together making a national difference. 

Have mito? Missions are an easy way to raise awareness and understanding amongst your family, friends and community, along with funds for research and support. New missions are always welcome.
