Important update and closure notification to Miracles for Mito Community

November 30, 2021

To The Amazing Supporters of Miracles for Mito: 

We hope you and yours are well as we approach the holiday season. The Holidays always bring a time of reflection and gratitude to those who have and continue to impact our lives. 


You, dear donors are ones who always come to the forefront of our minds. Miracles for Mito would not exist without you and your continuous, committed support. 

We cannot thank you enough. 

It is with a bittersweet heart that we compose this communication. 


We will be dissolving Miracles for Mito as of December 31, 2021. As we leave this organization, we feel incredibly proud of the support we have created in the Rocky Mountain region and the difference we have made in the Mitochondrial Community. Maria and I started this nonprofit because there was no support in Colorado. We leave eleven years later feeling confident that our influence and our voice have created a strong, sustainable community. 


You have given time, talent, and treasure to our cause. Please know that any remaining dollars will be allocated to the important work at the Mitochondrial Clinic at the Anschutz campus in collaboration with Children’s Hospital Colorado. Through their support, Ubiquinol will still be sent to families who need this important supplement. Please contact Heather Schichtel: for more information about this program and ongoing support to the Mitochondrial Clinic. 


We are working with the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF) for continuous family support. They are very happy to support our Colorado families, and we are working with them to establish a local UMDF Ambassador. Please contact Maria Hopfgarten: for more information about family support.


We hope you feel incredibly proud about what you have built in the last eleven years. You have given so many hope, support and a community.


In the spirit of strength- thanks to you, no one had to walk this journey alone. 


With Love and Gratitude, 

Maria and Heather
