The JDM Fund for Mitochondrial Research

Our son Joey was diagnosed in December 2006 with a very serious mitochondrial disorder that deprives his muscles and vital organs of the energy they need to properly function. Since mitochondrial disease is rare and relatively new to the medical field, there is very little funding (private or public) dedicated to treatment and finding a cure. The JDM Fund for Mitochondrial Research (for Joseph Difolco Mileti) will be dedicated to raising money for mitochondrial research for the benefit of Joey and the thousands of children and adults diagnosed each year with this devastating disease.
