United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation

We support the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation

Paperles Software actively supports the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF).

Why? Imagine a major city with half its power plants shut down. At best, such conditions would produce a "brown out" with large sections of the city working far below optimum efficiency.

Now imagine your body with one-half of its energy producing facilities shut down. The brain would be impaired, vision would be dim, muscles would twitch spastically or would be too weak to allow your body to walk or write, your heart would be weakened, and you would not be able to eat and digest your food.

For large numbers of people, especially children, this is precisely the situation in which they find themselves due to defects in the mitochondria, organelles found in every cell of the body which are responsible for the body's energy production. Mitochondrial diseases compromise their lives and can be fatal.

Mitochondrial defects have also been linked to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetes, autism, and the aging process. Since 1996, the UMDF has funded over $3,000,000 in research toward a cure and has helped thousands of families through the family support network. UMDF supports scientific collaboration and family networking through international symposia and is building an endowment to sustain research through the millennium.
