We are so happy to announce that our Illinois Governor has made an official proclamation making September 19th thru the 25th, 2010 Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week! This also means that the third full week of September is permanently Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week in the State of Illinois with the adoption of State Resolution 576. This is a great recognition of mito within our own state! There are already several other states that recognize this week and hopefully the rest will soon jump on board. Thanks to all who made this possible! It is great to know that people can now be more informed of what mito is and what better way to do that then have an entire week dedicated to mitochondrial disease awareness!
