HOST A MITO SOCIAL!
We are seeking volunteers to help organize Mito Patient & Family Socials. These gatherings are low-key, relaxed events that allow Mito families to meet each other, share stories, give and get support, and realize they're not alone on this difficult journey. For more information, please email email@example.com.
