Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health, Specifically Named Diseases

Mission: Our mission is to raise awareness and restore quality of life in persons with myalgic encephalomyelitis, fibromyalgia and related NeuroEndocrineImmune disorders. PANDORA empowers through patient assistance programs, is strong on advocacy, fosters education, and champion cures for neuro-endocrine-immune disorders through research. Vision: To make Myalgic encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia and related neuro-immune diseases understandable and curable.

Results: To date, there are no FDA approved treatments for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). PandoraOrg, along with other organizations, were responsible for getting an FDA stakeholder meeting with patients and key governmental agencies at the table. PandoraOrg was asked to give a report about ME to the IOM during their scientific process of reviewing the state of ME/CFS. We were able to provide immediate assistance to hundreds of patients with our Compassionate Care Programs by delivering meals, giving Covered in Love quilts and helping with transportation to appointments.

I have tears in my eyes when I try to describe what PANDORA has done for me. They offered support and guidance when all seemed lost. A family member was hospitalized and our rights were being violated. There was internal chaos within the hospital over our case. PANDORA was there with us, step by step, sorting out the steps, and with PANDORA' s help and our insurance company, we were able to have the strength to leave the hospital AMA and get the second opinion we needed, which was drastically different from the first. They also sent us a gas card to help with travel cost. The passion and compassion that drives the volunteer members is amazing. They understand the needs of people who have NEIDS. They change words into action for what is needed most to help a person overcome rough spots.
