Hi, I’m Cassidy and I have a very real condition called PANS. I am not sure what it stands for. All I know is that it has something to do with microplasma which is in your blood. What happens is when the microplasma rises it causes me to get very nervous.
Having a child with social, behavior or academic issues is a challenge. What can make it even more challenging, as a parent, is feeling like the blame lies on you for your child’s difficulties. It is not uncommon for parents of children with struggles to blame themselves for what their children go through, which can develop into a pattern of guilt, anxiety and hopelessness — especially when it seems like treatment or care isn’t helping.

Jacob’s Chance RiverCity BuddyBall football and tennis season is here!
We Are in need of dedicated and passionate volunteers. Two hours Saturday mornings from October 7 until November and Sunday afternoon tennis for 2 hours.
Our passion and dedication is to bring athletics and social opportunities for Any and All special needs to communities that are missing this.
We as a society take for granted the opportunities typical youth and young adults are given. To search for age appropriate sports or social clubs for these kiddos is a simple search. This part of life can be a struggle for many families with special needs. Once the opportunities are found the parents begin the process of hoping there are volunteers so that they can take a hour break. This hour allows families to talk, network or simply relax.
Together we can do this!!!
Be a part of Special Needs awareness by Volunteering to MAKE a difference in the community.
