OUR FAMILIES

We are absolutely “OVER THE RAINBOW" with the success of the second annual PAS PANDAS Bash! We were able to raise over $30,000 in this one magical night that will help families from all around the US get much needed medical care. We are grateful to the families and friends who came together to make the evening such an enormous success. A huge thank you goes out to our sponsors! With our supporters, we have learned that nothing is impossible.

HELP

OUR FAMILIES

Since 2011, the PANDAS / PANS Advocacy & Support group has grown from two concerned moms providing support for one another to a national organization dedicated to impacting positive change in the lives of all children with PANDAS/PANS.

PANDAS/PANS Advocacy and Support is a non profit organization focused on increasing awareness and acceptance of Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders and providing much needed support to our families struggling with the medical, educational, social-emotional, and financial hardships of these disorders. We're here to help.​
