At the start of June we celebrated carers everywhere. Carers play such an important role in the lives of those with mitochondrial disease. We asked one of our families, Lisa, about their caring role. Here’s what Lisa said,

“Being a full time carer for my daughter Lucy is hard work, she can’t do anything for herself so is dependent on us and her carers to help her with everything that she needs – wash, dress, change,shower, we also make sure she has her medication and goes to hospital appointments. The work we do is rewarded when lucy is happy and smiling and we know that we are doing something right for her.”

Thank you to carers everywhere.
