Mito is on Coronation Street... and Mito Is On My Street.
Starting on World Mitochondrial Disease Week, we're asking our supporters to raise awareness with the message 'Mito Is On My Street'.
The Coronation Street storyline about Oliver Battersby, a boy with mitochondrial disease, is raising awareness about mito in a big way. With your help, we can maximise this exposure and remind people that the heartbreak unfolding on screen is being endured by hundreds of real families in the UK every day.
It's really simple to get involved. If you or someone you love have been affected by mito, we'd like you to share a photo of yourself in your street (or another street, if you prefer). This is to highlight that mito isn't just on Coronation Street, it can be on any street. Your photo could be a quick selfie, or something more creative involving the whole family. You could also do it with colleagues in the street where you work.
Photos posted on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #mitoisonmystreet will automatically appear on this page. Don't forget to tag Coronation Street and The Lily Foundation when you share your photos.
