From one grieving mitochondrial parent / family / carer to another

The Children’s Mitochondrial Disease Network.

There are many perspectives, options and quotes, like colours of the rainbow. We are never to judge. But these are particularly accurate.

“Do not judge the bereaved mother or father. They come in many forms. They are breathing, but they are dying. They may look young, but inside they have become ancient. They smile, but their heart sobs. They walk, they talk, they cook, they clean, they work, they ARE, but they ARE NOT, all at once. They are here, but part of them is elsewhere for eternity.”
