Raising awareness and funds for mito one cupcake at a time
When Adam was diagnosed with Related to the mitochondria. myopathy in 2019, his daughter 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.
Together, our impact can be amazing and help so many people! Donations to Another Helping will go towards Dalia’s Wish. Check back regularly to view Emma’s progress!
How Does It Work?
We’re glad you asked! There is a minimum suggested donation of $15.00 per (6) pack of cupcakes ordered, but MitoAction gratefully accepts donations of any amount. You can choose to pick up the cupcakes and enjoy them yourself or have them donated to a local police station, fire station, school, hospital, etc.
Where Is the Pick-Up Location?
For now, all cupcakes can be picked-up at the Target on Eagle & Chinden in Boise, ID between 9:00-10:00am on the weekend or between 6:00-7:00pm on weekdays. Your pick-up day/time will be selected at checkout.
