Around the world Global Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week will be marked with educational, fundraising and advocacy efforts designed to raise awareness about mitochondrial disease (mito).

 

Background

Mito is not as rare as you might imagine. There are more than several hundred variations of the disease, each with their own set of symptoms and challenges.

Mito can affect any one at any time. It does not distinguish between age, race and gender.

The leading mitochondrial disease foundations around the world have collaborated on Global Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week to raise awareness on a global scale.
