Patient Support
Need Support? You are not alone.

Mito411 offers live, one on one support, education, advocacy, and a direct connection with someone who understands. Mito411 volunteers speak with callers needing support and share similar experiences on how to live day to day with mito. The personal connection can really help during the long and often difficult journey associated with “mito.”

Our volunteers are adults with mito, parents of children with mitochondrial disorders, and caregivers. Although volunteers can speak from personal experience and have access to many resources and educational material, medical advice cannot be offered.

Reach us by phone at (888) MITO-411
