"I want to commend PANDORA for setting an example of what true advocacy should be in light of the new XMRV findings in October by the WPI. There has been no ego, no vying for position among patients, nor negativity toward any particular person or institution. You have continued doing what you always do on behalf of the patient community with grace, dignity and commitment, not to mention pure dedication. You have worked to support and unite in the efforts to find a cure for NEIDs, and I wish you the very best in creating your centers of excellence. I hope all advocacy groups and organization will look to your example." 
---Heidi Dunlap Bauer
