Mito 411 is a program designed to offer hands-on, "live" support for families by families. By choosing a volunteer with experience in a particular area and calling 1-888-MITO-411, callers can reach a volunteer for support and conversation. It is a free service funded and staffed  by MitoAction. It is not, however, intended to provide medical opinions or advice.

Volunteers with Mito 411 are available to share their experiences with other patients, parents, spouses and caregivers of people affected by mitochondrial disease. We believe that a personal connection can really help during the long and often difficult journey associated with "Mito."

MaryBeth Hollinger is the Mito 411 Nurse Coordinator and can be reached at:
