Live Interview with Michael Goldberg: Living with Mitochondrial Disease – FREE EVENT
Join Michael Goldberg, Co-Founder of Hugs For Mito, and author of “I’ll Have Mine Rare, A Children’s Book”, in this heart warming interview as he shares his journey in discovering and learning to live with a rare disease, Mitochondrial Disease.
After waiting 9 months for a genetic blood test, Michael was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease. Mitochondria are called the power house of the cells in our bodies. They are responsible for creating 90% of our energy by converting our food and oxygen into energy.
With Mitochondrial Disease, the Mitochondria cannot do this life giving process: organs begin to fail and worse.
Michael shares candidly his journey with Mito: How he found himself confined to a wheel chair, barely able to hold his head upright, to taking charge of his life, designing his own fitness program, and being fully mobile and fit!
