Migraine Awareness Month 2015

Migraine Awareness Month 2015 is officially over but advocacy can last all year long!

Review of Migraine Awareness Month

A lot happened during Migraine Awareness Month.  I learned, hopefully taught, raised money and did my part to raise awareness.  Migraine is grossly underfunded and migraine treatment is not adequate.  Stigma and understanding need to change in many ways and any advocacy helps.  Thank you to anyone who participated, shared, and supported migraine awareness this month and everyday

I found this graphic particularly interesting. I personally donate to these very deserving foundations each year with no exception. While supporting these charities, I have never been to a walk, golf outing, fundraiser, or event dedicated to Migraine. So while I’m giving money to others, who is giving money to help my cause?

Migraine Awareness Fundraiser 2015

For migraine awareness month 2015, I ran a fundraiser this month to support migraine awareness. Money raised for Migraine Research Foundation through Jamberry fundraiser.   It “raises money to fund research into the causes of migraine, to develop improved treatments for sufferers, and to find the cure.” Money raised from the nail fundraiser was given to Migraine Research Foundation
