Rich and I will be hosting a Family Social for those with Mitochondrial Disease.
This is going to be hard to meet other families, face to face, who are going through this.
Right now we don’t know anyone else. I have talked to some families online but this is going to be in PERSON!
I usually love these kind of events and networking and talking, it’s something I am good at, but I have to say I am a little nervous. Rich is not looking forward to it, this is not in his wheelhouse at all but we’ll get through it and I’ll report back on how it was.
So I have a favor to ask.
I know my blog has a lot of traffic. I am talking almost 5,000 views and 1,000 visitors since it was created in May. That is incredible and I feel absolutely blessed to be spreading awareness about the disease as well as sharing things about my family.
I would love it if you could pass the blog along to more people and to hopefully reach families dealing with similar issues even if not Mitochondrial because a health condition with your child is never fun or easy and you need as much support as you can get.
I would love to see a large attendance at the event and I am certain you can help.
Thank you so much for being loyal followers!

This is awesome! I will do anything to support you!
You guys are awesome! Working full time, taking care of a sick child, and you are still able to plan a fundraiser – that’s amazing!
Good luck with this Des. Many minds are better than one.
You continue to be in my prayers every Saturday so I appreciate the thoughts you send out. Helps to pray more specifically for you and the family.

Thanks Ann, that means the world to me, and I know you have quite the strong prayer group.
How did the social go!? Curious to hear, hope it was the first of many gatherings with those with which you can truly relate!
I need to write about it, it was difficult but yet empowering.
