About the Cause / David
The Foundation is named for David Campbell, a red-headed,
blue-eyed little boy, who, at three and a half years
old, died from a mitochondrial disease called Leigh’s
Leigh’s Syndrome affects the important areas of the brain that control breathing, eyesight, appetite, blood pressure, and the ability to walk. The effects of Leigh’s prevented David from walking on his own, but for most of his life he successfully battled many of the effects, not losing his sight or the ability to breathe on his own until the last few weeks of his life.
