The Mito Foundation believes there are thousands of patients in Australia, who are un- or misdiagnosed and do not have access to the specialist care they desperately need.


Call the Mito Helpline to talk to a support officer for general advice, assistance in seeking a referral or more information on Mito Foundation support services.
