CureMito! is grateful and overjoyed to have award winning actress Chandra Wilson as its celebrity ambassador. Ms. Wilson is best known for her television role as Dr. Miranda Bailey on the ABC medical drama, Grey’s Anatomy.
She took a special interest in CureMito! because of her eldest daughter Sarina’s diagnosis of cyclic vomiting syndrome, a form of mitochondrial dysfunction and functional disease. Ms. Wilson has participated in numerous television and radio interviews since Sarina’s diagnosis to help increase awareness about cyclic vomiting syndrome and mitochondrial disease.
After “brisk walking” 13.1 miles in the Pasadena Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in February 2012 in support of CureMito!, she will be found hitting the pavement again in the Pasadena Rock ‘n’ Roll 5k Mini Run on February 17th, 2013.
Philanthropy for Ms. Wilson doesn’t just stop at CureMito! as she also serves as spokesperson for the Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome Association www.cvsaonline.org among her many other charitable efforts.
