Everyone at My Mito Mission wishes you all the very best for the Christmas season and for 2021.
Thank you for your valued interest and support.
We now have a shop!
Lots of great items from clothing to face masks to help you – to help us – raise awareness and a little bit of funds. Check it out … and maybe check something out too!
Thanks to our fabulous supporters, we were delighted to grant funds this year towards enabling mitochondrial disease to be added to the Rudy Study. Check out more about this project on their website.
We’re also very excited to be able to contribute to research about mito and mental health which will begin next year. Both of these through our friends at The Lily Foundation
Our previous grant funding projects through Lily have been a 4-year gene editing research project and a support weekend for young adults affected by mitochondrial disease.
With your amazing help, we’ll continue to raise awareness and hopes of treatments and a cure for mitochondrial disease, and support for those affected.
Delighted that this month is seeing us welcome a new mission – Ronni & Freddi’s.
Ronni & Freddi are brothers and have been affected in very different ways with mitochondrial disease. Ronni is eight and doing well, but tragically for little Freddi, it was severely
As part of Freddi’s legacy, his family have joined us with their own mission, based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk to help raise awareness, support and funds for research for everyone affected.
Please take a little time to read about the family’s journey with mito on Ronni & Freddi’s webpage
Thrilled to introduce and welcome our first ‘twosome’ on a mission … Steph and Jake!
They’re mum and son and both live with different diagnosis and the varying symptoms of mitochondrial disease. Steph and Jake are keen to raise more awareness from their home in Bury St Edmonds where they are wonderfully supported by Steph’s husband and Jake’s dad, Paul.
By sharing their story locally and beyond, Steph, Jake and their family want to ensure that more people know about mito, and how important it is to find treatment and a cure.
Please read about their journey with mito on Steph & Jake’s webpage.
