Desmond Gray, one of our nearest and dearest, lost his battle with mitochondrial disease at the age of 22. Desmond passed away on March 12th in his hometown of Anderson, SC. He is so greatly loved and missed, and his brave legacy carries forward each and every day.
"This Disease is a thief that steals your chance at a normal life. I hope and dream that a cure is found in the near future."
Desmond Gray, 1993-2016

We appreciate our donors, volunteers, and social media friends – all of you help us on the mission to fund research and treatments for pediatric and adult patients.
Hope can fly. Hope can heal. Thank you.
