Welcome to the Midwest PANDAS/PANS Parent Association Website. We are an organization of families and professionals dedicated to spreading the awareness of specific autoimmune disorders in children that trigger devastating neuropsychiatric symptoms.
We invite you to check back often as we update our website with more information.
“Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness,
to pull another hand into the light.”

WHO WE ARE
We are a group of committed parents and caregivers from the Midwest who have joined forces to advocate for our children and the thousands of others just like them.
Our Mission is to promote awareness of Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associate with Streptococcus (“PANDAS”) and Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (“PANS”) and access the best medical care for children with these diagnoses.
We seek to help others recognize PANDAS/PANS and educate, enable and empower parents and caregivers to take a proactive role in the care and treatment of their children.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please visit again soon and watch for upcoming events.
