Aly feeds Wifi to the rest of the car

Like our fore fathers before us we head west on a quest for answers about Mitochondrial Disease. Unlike our forefathers we are traveling the interstate and visiting relatives, and we have been dubbed “The Mito-Griswalds”. National Lampoon is not underwriting this Vacation, but we are having fun, bumping into odd people, and visiting relatives.

While we are on our tour NH Chronicle will be airing a half hour special on “Mito-Kids” Thursday Feb 26th at 7:30pm please tune in if you can. I hope they will also place it onliine and if they do I will be sure to send a link

There is a teaser here

And more of the story here

I will be adding more video to over the week as we do more interviews and take some vacation time

Mito-Kids Documentary teaser

Posted by mitokids on 30th January 2009

Initial teaser for a documentary video about my 4 daughters with mitochondrial disease. The footage covers 20 years of hospital stays, doctor visits, seizures, EEG Tests, Ketogenic Diet trials, VNS surgery, and on and on.

I am working on a few more short videos explaining how each of the kids live with their disabilities then raising funds to produce a feature length version with close to 100 hours of home video I have, and need to interview many doctors and specialists to discover just how far this disorder reaches. It affects my 4 kids, my sister, my dad and myself, all in different ways.

Donations made to c/o Britney Dole and Mito-Kids will help further the production of the documentary.
