Another Helping was launched in 2021 and combines 11 year old Emma Johnson’s love for baking, helping others, and supporting patients with mitochondrial disease like her dad, Adam Johnson.
When Adam was diagnosed with mitochondrial myopathy in 2019, Emma tried to help out around the house the best that she could. She has always had a strong passion for helping others, and this made her realize that she wanted to help people with mitochondrial diseases as well. Emma believes that all parts of a patient’s journey are important, whether they were recently diagnosed, have been diagnosed for a long time, or are still navigating the diagnostic journey!
Emma spent some time researching the different programs that MitoAction offers and found ways to support patients of all ages and in all stages of their journey. She then realized that she could use her love for baking to spread awareness and all donations received from cupcake orders would benefit mitochondrial disease patients.
