Acknowledge a loved one with a tribute donation and help hope fly
Mitochondrial disease is an energy production problem that primarily affects the muscular and neurological systems. Mitochondria are the “power plants” that produce the body’s essential energy and when they don’t function properly, the body can have a “power failure.” There is a gradation of effects – ranging from “brown out” to fatal “black out” – and no two people have the exact same symptoms.
Mitochondrial disease can also look like any number of better known diseases, including: Autism, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, muscular dystrophy and chronic fatigue, among others. The unifying thread of mitochondria gives hope for collective answers and treatments for millions of people.
