Migraine awareness month 2016 is here. June is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month and I have a few things planned to raise awareness and have a little fun.

I’m going to show you how I wear migraine awareness (and give away some things to wear yourself!).

I’ll mention some great causes you can donate to, give you other ways to support migraine awareness, and Giveaway some of the things I use! It’ll be even better than last year!
