MitoAction is a nonprofit organization founded by patients, parents, and Boston hospital healthcare leaders who had a vision of improving quality of life for children and adults with mitochondrial disease. The organization began in 2005 as an idea and has evolved from a small New England support group to a dynamic, active service organization helping thousands of patients and families. Despite the growth of the organization, the mission remains the same: to make a measurable impact in the lives of those who are affected by mitochondrial disease.

Originally founded as the Mitochondrial Disease Action Committee, the organization officially changed its name in 2008 to MitoAction.
