|Inspiring Hope Through Awareness|
May is a very special month for our communities.
Mother's Day is celebrated on May 9 this year.
We salute and give thanks to all the mothers around the world, especially those mothers who lovingly care for children with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and other NeuroEndocrineImmune (NEI) disorders. Their dedication and love inspire us everyday!
Another special day this month is May 12 - International Awareness Day for NeuroEndocrineImmune Disorders.
P.A.N.D.O.R.A. is proud to support several Awareness Day events this year. Visit our website to see information on Awareness Day events.
