The Alex Manfull Memorial Fund
Supporting Research, Education, and Treatment of PANDAS in Adolescents and Young Adults
Alex was in the prime of her life: a graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy and Princeton University, prolific writer, voracious reader, artist, photographer, runner, and fashionista. She was already a successful financial analyst in New York City, and had recently moved to Washington, D.C. She had a great sense of humor and kindness in spades.
Alex received a formal diagnosis of PANDAS just a couple of weeks before she died (although she had diagnosed herself years earlier). She was set to begin treatment with one of the most highly regarded pediatric neurologists in the U.S., specializing in PANDAS. Alex was elated to begin treatment and, as soon as she was better, intended to write about PANDAS, telling everyone about it so that no one else would have to endure what she had. But she died a few days before treatment was to begin.
The Alex Manfull Memorial Fund has been established in the hope that other young adults, as well as children and adolescents, shall have greater treatment options and that never again will another life be cut short due to PANDAS.
The Alex Manfull Memorial Fund supports Research, Education, and Treatment of PANDAS to lead the way to greater treatment options for Adolescents and Young Adults (as well as children) and to ensure that never again will another life be cut short due to PANDAS.
