PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections) occurs when strep triggers a misdirected immune response that results in inflammation of a child’s brain. In turn, the child quickly begins to exhibit life-changing symptoms such as OCD, anxiety, tics, personality changes, decline in math and handwriting abilities, sensory sensitivities, restrictive eating, and more.
PANDAS Network estimates that PANDAS/PANS affects as many as 1 in 200 children. This is a debilitating disease that takes hold of the victims and their families and leaves them questioning who they are.
We partnered with Moleculera Labs to share a story that goes untold. By gaining access to a shared story, our hope is that families who find themselves surrounded by hopelessness can find a glimmer in the dark.
