They all have forms of mitochondrial disease~Mitochondria exist in nearly every cell of the human body, producing 90 percent of the energy the body needs to function. In a person with mitochondrial disease, the mitochondria are failing and cannot convert food and oxygen into life-sustaining energy. For many, mitochondrial disease is an inherited genetic condition, while for others the body's mitochondria can be affected by other environmental factors. What is happening with these little ones is that the mitochondria (little power houses) are not getting to where they need to go in the body. This causes respiratory, liver, kidney and other sorts of organ failure. It also makes the person extrememly immune deficient and makes it nearly impossible to fight off infection.. be sure to visit the UMDF.org for more info, there is a faq section..
