Leo Donald Fortunato was born on a snowy April 5, 2007, in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Leo struggled for a year with mitochondrial diseased before dying on Earth Day, April 22, 2008. His big sister Emma misses giving Leo a bath and singing songs to him.
The families of Kirland Kilbride, Owen Eaves, Alexis Roung and Tucker Patterson also knows the incredible loss of a child to mitochondrial disease. Please light a candle in honor of all children who have lost their lives to Mito.
With love and compassion,
Sarah, Mario and Emma Fortunato
