Fight PANDAS/PANS For Max Wallace

$5,776 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 96 people in 31 months

On December 24, 2016 our precious 13 year old son took his life due to complications from PANDAS/PANS. The reason for this is lack awareness, lack of education in the medical community and delayed treatment due to late diagnosis. No parent should ever lose a child to this disease that affects so many, yet doesn't get the attention and recognition it deserves. Max was a normal functioning, healthy, beautiful, baby boy who was stolen from us by this disease. Before he was diagnosed (less than 1 year ago), he suffered with every PANS symptom for years. He acquired many diagnosis. He received many treatments for those diagnosis and NONE of them worked. It is our mission and calling by God to bring awareness to as many as we can reach. It is our desire to stand by others to fight and get the treatment that they need. We do not want to see another child lose his/her life to this disease. We do not want to put a monetary limit on what God can do. PANDAS/PANS has so affected our family that our passion is for others who suffer. We will be forever changed because of this tragedy and we may have lost the battle but we will not stop fighting for others.

I am AMAZED at what God is doing right now. Still working on details of non profit. There are other AMAZING non profits out there. We feel strongly about needing another one in Max's honor. There are thousands of kids who need the assistance of a grant to help pay for testing/treatment. We plan to set up a grant program to be available for kids across the US. Continuing to gather all of the details to make this possible. Your gift will go to the non profit in Max's name to help others in their fight against this horrible disease. Thank you and God bless you.
The Wallace family.

Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts. I have been busy working to get insurance coverage for IVIG, bringing awareness and looking for ways to fight for our kids. I can't help but think "I wish max was here to see this". He surely is smiling in heaven and God has moved mountains. Continuing our mission to bring hope and action. I will do everything I possibly can. I hope you have all seen an increase of awareness. We will be going to the media after we get some of our ducks in a row so to speak. Bless you all!!

I am so sorry for your loss. It breaks my heart as I sit here and read about it. My daughter has also suffered from PANDAS for years. She also has gone through many different diagnoses and treatments, none of which ever resolved her symptoms. There have been several times I have feared my daughter hurting one of her siblings or herself. Thank you for telling your story so others can learn about this horrible disease, and other children can be helped. I will keep your family in my prayers.
