Karen Tardif   AUBURN, NY

Lizzie is your average smiling little eight year old girl. One day, PANDAS became a part of her life. This formerly vibrant child is experiencing the ravaging of her brain with every passing moment. PANDAS, in brief, is an auto-immune disorder caused by a strep infection. Patients suffer a range of neurological symptoms that cause loved ones to describe them as a totally different child. She has began treatment in Washington, DC with a pediatric neurologist. Her treatment is not covered by any medical insurance. The O'Hara family agonize over the loss of the little girl they've known to love, and how they will afford the cost of the only treatment that has demonstrated positive effects. Please help now! A benefit will be held in Lizzie's honor Feb. 3rd at the Auburn Holiday Inn from 1-6pm. $10 a ticket to include door prizes,basket raffles, food, music, kid's activities, fun, cash bar and more!

We will be adding more donars thru the week. We have met are goal, but unfortunatley this is a life long disease that could require many treatments not covered by insurance. LIZZIE will be going back to DC in a couple of weeks, and she has enough money to receive another treatment if the doctors advise depending on her symptoms.We will keep you updated :) Thanks again for all of your love and support!
