The Dare to Hope Foundation was founded in June 2010 by Lisa Higgins and Gina Gareau-Clark, two mothers of children diagnosed with mitochondrial disease, a life-threatening metabolic disorder. Dare to Hope was born out of a need to help children with rare diseases or complex medical conditions have better lives.
