Please support the Prevention, Awareness, and Research of Autoimmune Diseases Act of 2009. My 5 year old son has a rare autoimmune disorder called PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Strep). There is not enough research about it, no set course of treatment protocol in place, and not many people (including in the medical profession) know of it. Hopefully, if this is passed, this disorder, along with many others, will get the attention they deserve.
AARDA needs everyone to contact their U.S. Representative in support of H.R. 2084, also called the "Prevention, Awareness, and Research of Autoimmune Diseases Act of 2009." This important legislation was introduced by Patrick J. Kennedy on April 23, 2009. Please go to our Advocacy Page for information on ways you can help.
