Vision & Mission


The AMDF was founded as a not for profit organisation in 2009 by Doug and Margie Lingard, their friends, and experts in the field of mitochondrial disease (mito). Doug and Margie tragically lost their son to mito, and have an inspirational daughter, Rose, who continues to fight the disease every day.

The organisation’s small team is based in Sydney and is supported by a dedicated band of volunteers across the country. Click here to view our dedicated teamVision-and-Mission-final
