ACTIVE-ate Your Mitochondria





Are you an active person? Do you love to move?


Imagine if you were unable to be active. Running, swimming, biking, dancing, painting, and even something as simple as walking or breathing are difficult or completely impossible for you to perform. This is what it can be like every day for a person suffering from Mitochondrial Disease.

Currently there is NO cure for Mitochondrial Disease, and with so many different genetic variations it makes finding treatments very challenging.
