HELP US HELP FAMILIES IN NEED
PANDAS/PANS Advocacy & Support is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is tax-deductible and will help us provide financial assistance to families struggling with PANDAS/PANS.
ENDORSEMENTS FROM OUR MEMBERS
Here on our site as well as in our Facebook group we try to provide current research, parenting advice, and support to families affected by PANDAS/PANS.
“This website has been a lifesaver. It is a wealth of fantastic information, advice and great ideas. It has given me an immense source of hope and optimism.
I don't feel as helpless and isolated. This website has empowered and given me support, plus I have met some incredible and wonderful parents. I feel hopeful.” - C. Dardis
WHAT IS PANDAS/PANS?
GRANT SUBMISSION PERIOD IS CLOSED

To raise awareness and educate medical professionals, State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park, IL) passed a measure to create an advisory council to make recommendations to the Illinois Department of Public Health on awareness and education among doctors, school-based health centers and mental health providers. Senate Bill 1684 was signed into law on Friday, August 7, 2015 and went into effect immediately.
