Conference Information!
New, Exciting Research, Consortium Insights, & Major Media News
Dear Friends of PANDAS Network,

The coordinated efforts between parents and the PANDAS/PANS Consortium has resulted in many positive actions! The Special Edition JCAP will be published this month, media attention is growing-including a number of radio spots and upcoming national news stories, and the physician-oriented PANDAS Physicians Network launched.

In order to further this joint effort, I was honored to attend a Consortium call. It became clear that WE THE PARENTS have to take the importance of our role very seriously. We don't have a medical system that enforces treatment protocols or currently informs physicians about PANDAS/PANS. After medical school, doctors aren't required to learn more about new illnesses nor do they have instant access to new research, especially if they are sole practitioners. For these reasons, it is apparent...
If we want change, we have to promote the research!

Your donation dollars are helping us bring research to the frontline by allowing us to sponsor the Brown University Conference this March and purchase 300 copies of JCAP to be sent to doctors both in the United States and internationally. Thank you for being our partner in these endeavors!!!

Let's keep fighting for recognition of our children,

Canada's highly rated and respected CTV News visits families to learn about the difficult barriers PANDAS/PANS families are facing with the medical establishment in Canada. For many Canadians, this will be their first introduction to PANDAS and PANS.

On December 31, 2014, each of you helped make a world of difference.With matching funds from the Burrow Family Foundation, our one-day Fundly Campaign raised nearly $17,000 for PANDAS Network!

For every family fighting to get their child better,for everyone touched by PANDAS,and for the doctors and specialists not yet aware of this illness, your contribution counts.
