The Lily Foundation

The Lily Foundation was founded in Lily's memory, having lost her battle to Mitochondrial Disease at just eight months old. The charity aims to give hope, answers and support to the many other children and families that face the challenges of this disease today.

What's Mitochondrial Disease?

Did you know every twenty minutes a child is born who will develop Mitochondrial Disease by the age of 16!? There is no cure for this disease which is for many debilitating and life limiting. We have created an animation to explain how important mitochondria are, and what happens when they go wrong. 

Our Mission

The Lily Foundation has three aims: To fund research to improve diagnosis and increase treatment options, and ultimately find a cure. To raise much needed awareness of these conditions both in the general population and the medical community. To support families affected by this condition.
