Managing the challenges of mitochondrial disease (mito) alongside all of life's other responsibilities can be overwhelming. The following webpage is designed to ease this stress by providing useful resources and services to help manage your everyday life with mito.
Thomas Dow (Tom) was born in 1986 and, except for childhood asthma, was healthy, happy and very cute with a caring and engaging nature. Tom reached his childhood milestones quite early; walked at 12 months and talked by 18 months. At the age of four, Tom started to walk differently and upon a visit to the doctor, the devastating journey of medical investigation began which identified rapid deterioration, illness and, eventually, severe disability.
