Be a Mito Champion
By championing for research, you will be a
champion for people with mito.
One baby is born every week that will die from mitochondrial disease. Their short life is spent fighting this debilitating condition with no treatment and no cure.
Together we can change this!
We will seek out and fund the most cutting edge, innovative and promising new research into mitochondrial disease. Discoveries of treatments and cures will mean people with mito will live full lives free from pain, and a looming death sentence hanging over their heads
Be a champion for research and help our scientists and medical professionals uncover new ways to diagnose, treat and ultimately cure this disease.
With your support, in the not-too-distant future, no child will be born to die with mito.
Your donations will be like building blocks each contributing, along with others, to uncover new findings about mito and building towards a cure.

Meet some of our mito warriors...
Mito does not discriminate. Anybody you know could have mitochondrial disease; it affects anyone at any age. Here are some people might relate too...
Rebecca was working towards her dream job as a hairdresser and her life was so full of fun - until she began experiencing chronic stomach pain. After suffering years of ongoing symptoms, she was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease at the age of 19. With no cure or treatment, she has to manage her symptoms as much as she can. Bec is committed to advancing research to help herself and others in her position to at lead normal lives.
Baby Ziya and her family benefited from advances in genetic diagnostics, receiving a relatively early diagnosis for Ziya’s rare form of mito. Unfortunately, she passed away before she could benefit from the developments in novel treatments and cures we hope to discover with your support. Let’s come together to champion research in Ziya’s honour so no family needs to experience the suffering of losing a child to mito.
Some forms of mito are hereditary, this means that multiple generations in families like Sean’s can be impacted at once. Sean lost his mother and is brother to a disease that is today causing suffering for his sisters, and could one day affect him. Discoveries into treatments will mean Sean’s family won’t have to lose another family member to this cruel disease, and developments in IVF techniques may mean they will no longer continue to pass down this cruel disease to future generations.
Why Your Support Matters
With your support, in the not-too-distant future, no child will be born to die from mito.
Mito research champions will help us seek out and fund the most cutting edge, innovative and promising research into mitochondrial disease. Each new discovery is a promising step forward for people impacted by mito today.
