My husband Steve was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Myopathy in 2002 (about a year after the onset of his symptoms). Although it seems that everyone has a slightly to extremely different experience with a mitochondrial disease, the UMDF helped us know we were not alone. They also helped our friends and family have a resource to information. We even used their information to help put this disease into "english" for Social Security disability. I lost Steve 2 years ago (10 1/2 years after onset). I'm grateful for every moment I had with him and to the UMDF for helping us know we were not fighting alone. I donate in memory of my wonderful best friend. Miss you baby...everyday.
