I am staying in bed to cure mito

B & E

Eamon and I thought it would be a fun way to spend his last day of his home schooling supporting other kids who may not have the option to return to school..xx

Eamon and I are staying in bed all day to cure mito!

On Friday 22 May, we are taking part in Stay In Bed Day to support Australians living with mitochondrial disease (mito).

We are challenging ourselves to stay in bed ALL DAY… it won’t be easy (gulp).

Why am I doing this? Because for too many people living with this disease, finding the energy to get out of bed is a daily struggle.

Mito robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure. It affects one child born in Australia each week. That’s 50 Aussie kids every year.

And right now, mito patients are among the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 crisis as their ability to fight infection is extremely limited.

So I’m asking for your support…

Please sponsor me in Stay In Bed Day and support my challenge to provide vital support services and fund research to help people living with mito.

You’ll receive a tax-deductible receipt for tax time (June 30 is not far away).

Thank you so much.

B & E xx
