Red Hat Mitochondria


The reason that this picture is so special is because 3 of us have been affected by mitochondrial disease. Next to me is Steve Marriott of the Marriott Hotel Chain. Despite his vision, hearing, and other difficulties associated with his mitochondrial disease, he has truly overcome obstacles and is an inspiration. The Marriott Foundation for People with Disabilities is just one of the corporation's outreach programs. Chuck, in the red costume, is the president of the UMDF. Despite losing his daughter Gina to mito in 1995, he is still dedicated to this cause. Chuck started the UMDF in his basement. Richard is on the UMDF Board of Directors. As a rule of the Marriott Corporation, this picture may only be used with permission and is not for other publication.


"The" mito-man! Jamie sports his mito gear with friends, but on a serious side, he was a driving force behind legislation that declared the 3rd week in September as "Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week" in New Jersey! He is also affected.
