It's been an exciting year and we are thrilled to have had you join us as we work to create a world where all lives are powered by healthy mitochondria. Now, we'd like to give you something this holiday season -- information, hope and our sincere thanks for your commitment to help us continue Energizing Lives. Please read on...
Walter is a wonderful boy living his best life with Leigh disease. His mom, credits his phenomenal success to early diagnosis, the proper treatment and a strong spirit. 

Thomas Zachos is living with mitochondrial disease but doesn’t let it hold him back. Instead, it inspires him to use his perspective to encourage others while showing the world that he can achieve anything.

Thomas recently wrote a beautiful children’s book about hope, diversity and seeing people for who they really are -- on the inside.  
Through carefully chosen words and stunning illustrations, Thomas Zachos shares the message that we all have a very special purpose in life. Superheroes Like Me reassures the reader that we are in control of our own destiny and encourages us to find our own inner Superhero. He says he wrote the book because he wants to change how people look at those with a disability and for children to embrace the truth that everyone can use unique strengths to be their own Superhero. 

MitoCanada has heped bring Thomas’ book to life through animation.

NEW: MitoCanada's Patient Contact Registry
Deepening Understanding. Improving Lives.
Knowing as much about a disease as possible means that more information can be shared with those who have been newly diagnosed, treatments can be developed, effective strategies for living with mito can be introduced. We recently created the MitoCanada Patient Contact Registry, a secure database where patients and caregivers can share their experiences of living with mito. The information we collect remains confidential but will help improve care, connect participants to research opportunities and clinical trials, inform resources, and strengthen advocacy efforts.
