"What does a person with a severe disability look like? If the image that came to mind was a person who uses a wheelchair for mobility, than you're not alone. But here are the facts: over 26 million people in the United States with severe disability, of those 26 million only 7 million use assistive devices such as a wheelchair, cane, crutch or walker. In other words over 74% of the Americans with severe disabilities do not use any devices. So you can't judge a persons disability by whether or not the person looks disabled. It is invisible."

"Many people have never heard of Mitochondrial disease, but it affects nearly 1 in every 4,000 Americans. NECN's Health and Science reporter Anya Huneke has more on the challenges that those with the disease deal with on a daily basis. Dr. Katherine Sims of Mass. General Hospital joins us to talk about Mitochondrial disease."
