Connect with other mito families in your local community. Meet, share stories, give and get support from others with shared experiences
Virtual Mito Patient & Family Socials
Our virtual MitoSocials help connect families with other mito families in their local communities. These low-key, relaxed gatherings allow mito families to meet each other, share stories, give and get support, and realize they’re not alone on this journey. We want to help you get support closer to home, and are hopeful that a MitoSocial will offer just that.
