About Homie’s Hope: The inspiration behind Homie’s Hope is Abigail Goerges, the niece of Kim Mullins (CEO/Founder of Homie’s Hope). When Abi was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease at 18 months, the doctors did not expect her to celebrate her ninth birthday, but Abigail just celebrated her sixteenth birthday! Due to the nature of Mitochondrial Disease, it is classified as a terminal illness and currently has no cure or treatment. If you could imagine running your whole house on a single battery, you would have to choose what objects and items were necessary, and what you could live without. Abi’s body is forced to make these decisions every single day.
To show their support for Abigail, members of Homie’s Hope have organized and coordinated benefits to raise over $64,000 in 9 years for the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation. Those donations assisted UMDF in funding research to help find a cure for Mitochondrial Disease. Given the measurable success of previous fundraisers, along with the realization of the financial strain Mitochondrial Disease can cause, Homie’s Hope was created to assist Mitochondrial affected families while continuing to support the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation in its on-going research efforts.
