In this year’s TV campaign, we’ve turned the camera on our doctors, so you can see how intensely they care for every child – and family – they treat.

One of these doctors is Bruce H. Cohen. He’s the division director of Neurology at Akron Children's Hospital. Dr. Cohen specializes in researching and treating mitochondrial diseases, as well as other neurological ailments.

Mitochondria provide the cell with almost all of its energy. Dr. Cohen says, "Mitochondria are to the cell of the body what a car engine is to the car itself."

Even though there are no cures for mitochondrial diseases, Dr. Cohen is looking for one every day.
