Team Dot

By Jessica Bartel

I'm raising vital funds for mito!

While I did not know Dot personally, I am so blessed to have heard her story, it touched my heart so deeply. Every post still brings tears to my eyes, no matter the numerous times I read them. The heartache is so tangible yet always filled with the deep, unending, never giving up, overwhelming love displayed by the Georgiou family.  

This year I will be doing the bloody long walk to honour the life of Dot Winifred Georgiou. Suzie Georgiou expressed her greatest desire was to give other Mito families the gift of time. So would you please consider joining with me in supporting both their family and other Mito families.

Below is a bit more information about what Mitochondrial disease is and what the Mito foundation do. 


I’m fundraising to help the Mito Foundation support the mito community whilst seeking a cure.  Mitochondrial disease (mito) is a rare life threatening disease that can affect anyone at any age.

The Mito Foundation provides information and support services to connect mito patients and their families to help them feel less alone while funding research to develop meaningful treatments and cures.

You can help too, by donating to my fundraiser. Together we can create real change for the mito community.


Thank you to my Sponsors
