We aspire to improve the lives of children and adults affected by PANS, PANDAS and other immune-related encephalopathies.
We are experienced leaders in the PANS advocacy community, who together believe collaboration and empowered action are the keys to the world we seek: one where no one suffers through PANS and immune-related encephalopathies without access to a knowledgeable provider, insurance coverage for standard-of-care treatments, or the support that comes with public awareness.
