Raising Arizona Kids has a new PANDAS article featuring the Kling Family. In “PANDAS: My Brain is Making Me do This!” PANDAS support group leader Kari Kling conveys the story of her son, Alex, and his journey with PANDAS.
According to the article, “They’d been to 17 specialists trying to find answers; nothing worked. ‘We felt we were losing him, cognitively, physically and emotionally.’ (Mrs. Kling) ultimately reached one of the NIMH researchers by phone, pleading for help. ‘By this time I was pretty hysterical. I said, ‘Please, I can’t find anybody in Arizona that knows enough on how to treat this’.”
The Klings did eventually find help in Chicago and, thankfully, Alex is “…making a remarkable recovery”.
