Formerly MitoWish Trips, MitoAction is honored to celebrate the life of Dalia Flaggert, daughter of Board Member Jessica Fein and her husband, Rob Flaggert. Dalia passed away on March 11, 2022, one week after her 17th birthday. One of her greatest childhood memories was her family’s wish trip to Give Kids the World Village. MitoAction has dedicated this program to Dalia in hopes of providing other children with mito an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.
We are so excited to share our partnership with Give Kids the World Village in Orlando, FL. This partnership allows us to grant wishes to children affected by mitochondrial disease by providing magical experiences for the entire family. These once-in-a-lifetime wish trips will help families recapture some of the precious moments that may have been missed due to hospital stays or illness because of their mitochondrial disease.
Join us to make wishes come true for children with mitochondrial disease!
