|meeting of the families who have mito children and adults with mito get together|
this is a major break through. parents for which the mother is the carrier of the genetic defect can now attempt to have a healthy child by introducing mito cells from a healthy female.
it is not genetic engineering.
mitochondrial disease is devastating, many young mothers face the chances every day to dice with the idea of producing babies severely ill and on the death list the day they are born.
it is not a good situation and we all must agree that to by pass this is terrific.
i know many mothers out there now struggling with both severe ill health in multiple children and also mothers trying to decide with their partners will they attempt again a child and maybe they will be lucky this time not to pass on the gene. following this the mito angels fly too soon leaving heartbreak and profound grief.
i am delighted for all child bearing mito mothers.
this at last is a chance they have been waiting for.
now for Ireland and one county has asked a question.
