try to say
When I tell people I have Mitochondrial Disease,
they ALWAYS say...
So I answer,
"MY... TOE... KON... DREE... ALL Disease!"
Mitochondrial Disease kills more kids every year than all pediatric cancers combined! Why don't people know that? Why don't they know how to say the name of the disease?
Niels Strautnieks, age 11, has Mitochondrial Disease
If people can't even say the name Mitochondrial Disease,
then how can we expect them to help?
