Why We're Here
In 2009, MitoCanada was formed by a group of mitochondrial disease patients, family and friends, with support from dedicated medical professionals. MitoCanada exists to provide support and practical information that will help to improve the quality of life and sense of community for patients and their families.
What We Do
The term “Mitochondrial disease” refers to a group of disorders. There are so many types of Mitochondrial disease it would be impossible to name them all, and many have yet to be discovered. Each condition is the result of a genetic mutation – a specific change in the genetic material of the mitochondria. The mutation causes the mitochondria to fail.
