I'm staying in bed to cure mito

Update

I am so humbled, & gratified, by the support I have received to date - especially in these difficult times. A HUGE Thank You to all my sponsors so far, I'm committed to help the Mito Foundation continue, & you all are helping me! I send love &  heartfelt thanks, keep safe & well.

I'm staying in bed all day to cure mito!

On Friday 22 May, I’m taking part in Stay In Bed Day to support Australians living with mitochondrial disease (mito), especially my Granddaughter, Alana.

I’m challenging myself 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.

Alana is 7, with many challenges, she needs full-time care to function. Despite her challenges, her spontaneous smile is delightful, & every day I learn something from her.

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 recept for tax time (June 30 is not far away).

Thank you so much.

Thank you to my Sponsors
