During the third week of September (the 14th through the 20th), the Mito community comes together to raise awareness for Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week.
Visit Mito Action’s website at https://www.mitoaction.org/awareness for ways you can be a part.
Why is Awareness Week important?
“Thousands of families face the reality of living with mitochondrial disease. During the third week of September, MitoAction and families across the country bring awareness to Mito. Each year we provide support, educate the public, and advocate for families. Each year, we grow stronger.
We believe that awareness is important year round, but highlighting these issues during Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week provides a time for people to come together and display the passion and strength of those working to improve the lives of those affected by Mito.”
