As we look for new ways to help raise vital awareness and funds for mitochondrial diseases, we would like to invite people affected by mito to help us create a unique family calendar for 2021. A calendar that will be filled with love, hope and the faces of real children and adults that are living, or lived, with mitochondrial disease.
We’re currently looking for mitochondrial patients who would like to feature in our 2021 calendar, and will also accept submissions from families who would like a loved one included who may not be with us today, but their memory lives on in the hearts of their family and friends.
At this stage we would like to see how many people would be willing to contribute and once we understand how many people would like to get involved can we then decide on how best to create the calendar sensitively and collectively to include as many people as possible.
All monies raised from the sales of the calendars will go directly into funding vital research into finding viable treatments for mitochondrial diseases and hopefully, one day, a cure. And the awareness that can come from such a campaign will be invaluable in helping us to continue to create a brighter mito future.
We will happily accept entrants from overseas as well as the UK and if you’d like to get involved with this project please do email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest and for more information.
