The Mito Foundation is the only organisation dedicated to supporting and empowering people affected by mitochondrial disease (mito) in Australia. It provides resources and support services for people impacted by mito, and their families, while increasing awareness and understanding of this devastating disease. The foundation aims to transform outcomes for the mito community by driving meaningful change and funding essential research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cures of mitochondrial disorders.

Mito Foundation was founded in 2009 by Doug and Margie Lingard, their friends, and experts in the field of mitochondrial disease (mito). Doug and Margie have tragically lost a son and daughter to mito.

Together with its generous supporters and volunteers, Mito Foundation’s passionate team is committed to creating a brighter future for the mito community.
