Alisha and Wendell Holloway of Vilonia have had a long journey to get to a diagnosis of mitochondrial disease for their sons, Jonathan, 14, and Jeremiah, 6. Following the boys’ diagnosis, Alisha was also diagnosed with the genetic disease. The Holloways said they want to educate people about it and hope a support group will be formed for patients’ families. A walk is already being planned for next year, Alisha said.
