Every 15 minutes, a child is born who will develop a mitochondrial disease by the age of 10. Dr. Annette St. Pierre-MacKoul stopped by the studio to discuss Mitochondrial disease and the upcoming Energy for Life Walkathon.

*Yesterday we told you about the Energy for Life Walkathon. Our story contained an error. We interviewed a young man named Drew Andersen, and our on-screen graphic said he was diagnosed with Mitochondrial disease. That is not the case. We are deeply sorry for any worry or sadness this may have caused.
