Alana Catton 20.1.2013 - 27.9.2020

Alana was born with a rare form of mitochondrial disease which robbed her body of many abilities that most of us take for granted and presented significant health challenges.  Despite the ruthless progression of this disease which ultimately took her life, her 7 years were full of immense joy, fierce determination, and unconditional love.  She touched and inspired many people across all aspects of her life in a very special way.  And she taught us so much about life and love, and we continue to be inspired by her to do more and be better. 

Alana thrived on new challenges and activities and had a magical way of connecting with others, full of smiles and sparkling eyes.  Alana inspired many to learn about mito, walk 35kms and fundraise to improve the lives of everyone living with mito.

Alana and our family have benefited greatly from the support of the Mito Foundation and ask that anyone wanting to contribute, donates to the Mito Foundation to continue to support families like ours and fund essential research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cures for mito.
