Whether you’re a long-time supporter or new friend, will you please help provide educational programs, materials, and support for families, educators, legislators, doctors, and more?
Your support reaches five core audiences (General Public, Patients/Families, Schools, Legislators, Providers) which increases awareness and understanding of PANS PANDAS nationally while providing critical support to all community members. You are the key to supporting and educating the community. Will you donate today to support critical programs?
The Alliance to Solve PANS and Immune-Related Encephalopathies (ASPIRE) serves children, adults, families, doctors, and educators affected by PANS, PANDAS and other immune-related encephalopathies.
Every day the community comes to ASPIRE to ask for help. Unfortunately, the reality is that many families see several doctors before receiving the correct diagnosis of PANS PANDAS. Meanwhile, symptoms worsen, and patients and families are struggling financially, scholastically, and emotionally.
In a nutshell, everyone needs a better understanding of PANS PANDAS (the why’s, what’s, and how’s) plus ways to help improve outcomes while alleviating the suffering that comes with this devastating but treatable illness. Patients and families want faster access to appropriate care and strategies to navigate their new day-to-day life that PANS PANDAS has brought upon them. Schools seek further education on how to support their students appropriately. Legislative advocates want tools to help advocate for legislation that will improve the lives of those with PANS PANDAS. Finally, providers want to understand this disorder better and want accessible support for their patients outside of their office.
ASPIRE in Action – We empower and connect our community with tools and resources for advocacy, education, support, and awareness.
ASPIRE programs reach five core audiences to increase awareness and understanding of PANS PANDAS on a national level while providing critical support to all members of our community.

We will continue our school in-service education program that we launched in 2020; we have spoken at schools from Massachusetts to Illinois, down to Tennessee, across to Colorado, and everywhere in between. We are providing new literature to doctors to help them better support families. Stayed tuned for a few more programs we are developing. This winter, we launched a webinar program free of charge to our community. All of our programs are made possible by donors like you.
Recently, we have expanded and improved our collection of ASPIRE toolkits and handouts, providing information at your fingertips and making it easy to share information on PANS PANDAS. In addition, our board, volunteers, and Professional Advisory Board are updating a couple of existing toolkits and writing a few new ones we know our community needs. We can’t wait to share them with you. Additionally, we have added several new pages to our content-rich website, such as our Behavioral Health section.
ASPIRE looks forward to sharing the projects and initiatives we are working hard on behind the scene with you soon. So, make sure you have signed up for our newsletter and follow us on social media. Facebook. Instagram. Twitter.
