Senior Project and Science Project Focusing On Mito

My sweet niece has made a wonderful Mito awareness video, but for some reason, I cannot get it into a form to share. Sad, but I will figure it out. My niece is 12, and the video is FANTASTIC!! She shared it with her class and then again with another organization. I am so very humbled that she chose to focus on Mito at the local level and raise awareness. I love this precious little gal so much, and I know from the care she shares with her cousins and the artistic talent and attention to heart and detail she used on the video, that she is going serious places, and will help others in HUGE ways along her journey!! I am so so so proud of her!!!

AND THEN.......

A senior student at our local, small town USA high school approached me about doing her senior project on Mitochondrial Disease Awareness. First, I was speechless! I know this amazing young lady and her fantastic family from our involvement in 4-H, and I already liked her a lot, but this pushed her into the LOVE category! She has met with me twice, shared her ideas, taken over bracelet-making, written talks, scheduled presentation to multiple high school and middle school classes, and is even doing an awareness video!! SO tonight, while photos are being uploaded to her for the video, I had to get over here to share this fantastic news!!!!

Every bit of awareness is KEY to SOLVING the problem of Mitochondrial Disease. Never discount the value of even just telling one person about Mito!!!!!
