Each cell in the body possesses hundreds to thousands of mitochondria, known as 'powerhouses' for the energy they provide. But gene mutations can cause these important organelles to fail, often resulting in devastating disease. Erica Westly reports on the patient advocates--and politicians--pushing for new treatments for mitochondrial disease.
