Awareness Week   
14-20 September is Global Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week
 
Across the globe the week will be marked with various educational, fundraising and advocacy efforts all designed to raise awareness about mitochondrial disease..
Having mitochondrial disease is like having a massive power outage within your body.
All cells in the human body have mitochondria. They are the ‘power plants’ that provide the body with all of the energy it needs to walk, talk, laugh, hear, digest food, and breathe.
 
When a person has mitochondrial disease, it means that the power plants in their cells are not working properly. It also means that they could suffer a ‘power failure’ in the organ systems that sustain life. In some cases, mitochondrial disease is fatal.
