Lily Anna Merritt was a beautiful little girl and despite being given days to live, she graced this world with eight months of life. The Lily Foundation was built on Lily's strength and inspired by her fighting spirit. Although The Lily Foundation was founded in Lily's memory, it is not for Lily. It is to give hope, answers and support to the many other children and families that face the challenges of this disease today. There is no cure or treatment for Mitochondrial Disease.
Lily Foundation offers a variety of events to participate in and raise valuable donations to support the charity. Check out the events below for more information.
