Chandra Wilson: The Awareness That Is Brought to Cure Mito Is Amazing

Posted: Updated:

Chandra Wilson of ‘Grey's Anatomy' is helping to organize a big charity event this weekend at the Rose Bowl to bring awareness to finding a cure for Mitochondria.

In early 2010, actress Chandra Wilson's teenage daughter, Sarina McFarlane, began experiencing never-ending bouts of nausea. Every month the queasiness escalated to the point that, for days, McFarlane could not stop vomiting.

The case sounded like an episode straight out of "Grey's Anatomy," where Wilson plays Dr. Miranda Bailey. Wilson said for a year, her daughter's doctors were baffled by the condition.

As Chandra tells us on Good Day L.A., Sarina's illness led her to help raise money for CureMito!, a non-profit dedicated to the treatment and research of mitochondrial disease, a disorder that affects the body's energy-production function.

To that end, the Rock ‘n' Roll Pasadena Half Marathon will be taking place this Sunday. Far East Movement will be performing at the finish line concert at the Rose Bowl and Chandra Wilson (Grey's Anatomy) will be out to raise awareness/funds for CureMito! There will be awesome visuals including live bands, cheerleaders, thousands of runners and more.

The Rock N Roll Pasadena event begins Sunday morning at 7:30am at the Rose Bowl.
