Mito Foundation and Children’s Tumour Foundation are delighted to partner for this dedicated parents and carers support group

Mito Foundation logo and Children's Tumour Foundation logo

We welcome you to join a safe space to connect, share experiences and offer support to others raising a child with mitochondrial disease (mito) or neurofibromatosis (NF).

Why are Mito Foundation and Children’s Tumour Foundation working together?

The mito and NF communities share many similarities. By creating a space for these communities to meet, we hope they can share their experiences, strength and hope for the future. Come along to make new connections in our combined community.
