About People Against Leigh Syndrome (PALS)
People Against Leigh Syndrome (PALS) was formed in 2013 by the friends of William Martin, a Houstonian diagnosed with a progressive and fatal form of a mitochondrial disease called Leigh syndrome. PALS seeks to build awareness of this unknown disease and support efforts that would lead to discover a treatment or a cure.
Currently, PALS is working in partnership with the Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and the UT Mitochondrial Center of Excellence.
