The above title would be (more) unwieldy if I included all the names of the friends, family, and strangers who have contributed to making the À Table! project a reality. There are many people to whom my husband and I are deeply grateful. With the launch of this project, more people can help to raise awareness about PANDAS and PANS: purchase a bottle of the wine, made especially for The Alex Manfull Memorial Fund, invite friends and family to your table, and enjoy the wine with a meal as you help spread the word about this horrific disorder. Raise your glass to the defeat of PANDAS and send us a photo that can be posted online on Alex’s birthday, September 7th. All proceeds will go to further research on the causes and treatment of Post-infectious Autoimmune Basal Ganglia Encephalitis disorders such as PANDAS and PANS.
There are no words to describe how my husband and I felt when our 26-year-old daughter, Alexandra “Alex” Manfull, lost her life to PANDAS, a basal ganglia encephalitis disorder triggered by Group A Streptococcus. Devastated may come closest. Alex was our only child and we were a very close family.Read more “À Table!
