    UMDF members in the state of Utah are encouraged to contact their state representatives to ask them to support or co-sponsor HJR 35. HJR 35 will establish a mitochondrial disease awareness week in the state of Utah. HJR 35 was successfully introduced by Rep. Kenneth W. Sumsion at the request of Utah UMDF Member Marie Nuccitelli.

    To find your state representatives, click here. http://le.utah.gov/house/DistrictInfo/newMaps/State.htm?tr=y&auid=7735335

    Phone your representative's office and urge their support of HJR 35.

    "Every 30 minutes, a child is born who will develop a mitochondrial disease by age 10."
