In late 2015, at 10 months old, our son Luca was diagnosed with having a Mitochondrial Disease. There is no treatment. Or cure. We had no idea what this was- as most people don't. One Google search told us to expect our son to die within two years but then another Google search provided a link to the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation website- and from then on, we have felt nothing but support from them.
We feel extremely blessed that we're able to celebrate Luca's 2nd birthday WITH Luca this February. In conjunction with the AMAZING Essendon Royals Soccer Club, on Sunday 19th February, we're having a party!
At Ormond Park, Moonee Ponds we'll have kids activities, raffles, auctions and an old boys football game to help raise funds for the foundation. Everyone is welcome!
If you're able to donate or share this page to friends and family to help people become more aware of Mitochondrial Diseases. Every little bit helps.
