SEPTEMBER IS MITOCHONDRIAL DISEASE AWARENESS MONTH - September 1, 2015
September is Mitochondrial disease awareness month in memory of Greenville's own Corynna Strawser. Corynna dedicated her life to raising awareness for this rare and devastating disease and in her honor Senate Bill 300 was passed to allow us to carry on her fight. Mitochondrial disease, Mito for short, is an inherited chronic illness in which the mitochondria of the infected cells fail to produce enough energy for the organ or organelle to function properly. The disease often shows at birth but has also been known to develop through out a life time. Today 1 in 4,000 Americans live with mitochondrial disease. Because the disease has no cure, it is important to recognize and help those who suffer from it. Senate Bill 300 and Mitochondrial disease awareness month serve the purpose of getting the general public aware of this very serious disease. The more people who know about the disease and actively pursue new cures and treatments the more likely we are to save those who suffer from it in the future. Coryanna's mother Kristi will be the guest for next Tuesday's Community Ties on WTGR to talk about the upcoming and 2nd Annual Shine On Corynna 5k scheduled for October 3rd.
