Migraine Awareness Month 2018

migraine awareness month 2018

Today marks the first day of Migraine Awareness Month 2018!!! I know a lot of you are thinking, “But how can I help?”  This month I will be sharing information and advocacy opportunities from a variety of migraine organizations that I am involved with and follow. I can’t wait for you to get involved also.

The simplest way to participate is sharing information, following on all social media and virtually “making some noise.”  Share with your followers how you suffer, important information and help break down the stigma.

Donate

To start the month out, I’d like to ask for your donation and participation with an organization that you’ve heard me talk about…..Miles for Migraine.

Miles for Migraine vision is “to create some big noise in the migraine community and raise awareness that migraine and headache disorders that it is more than “a headache”. We are making great strides by growing our signature event, the Miles for Migraine 2-Mile walk, 5K/10K run; and by expanding our newer programs –  a day camp for adolescents who have  chronic migraine, and our adult seminar series” Shirley Kessel (executive director)

How to Participate

On June 10, the Cincinnati walk/run will be at Otto Armleder Memorial Park

Support Migraine Awareness Month 2018

Walk or run with My Migraine Life Team.  If you live close enough to walk/run, please join my team!  I’d love to see you there.  Go here and join the team

If you’d like to donate and support my fundraising efforts but won’t be able to make the walk, go here and donate migraine and headache awareness

Local Support

If you are local and want to participate but are unable to walk/run we’d love for you to come anyways!  Join my team and come to meet all the wonderful advocates and migraine supporters.  There will be a quiet tent to rest and you are not obligated to walk.  Your donation and presence are much appreciated!  We are all doing what we can do and any effort are spoons well spent. migraine awareness

Way to Participate in Migraine Awareness Month 2018

Ask a friend, co-worker or loved one to help you raise money.

If you want to donate but don’t have the funds.  I totally get it.  Between the price of medications and therapies and difficulty with keeping a job, it can be even harder to donate.  Remember that $10 makes a difference.  Each dollar goes a long way and any donation takes us a step closer to helping many!

If none of these are an option, please share this post.  Sharing is caring and if you can’t support maybe a friend can.  It’s all about not being alone and spreading a message.  Everyone can share! Teaching your audience/social media followers how strong you are to be fighting migraine for yourself or for others will go really far.

Does Juicing for Migraine Benefit or Trigger an Attack?

Juicing for migraine can help heal me or trigger my migraine.  Lack of food is a migraine trigger. Fruits and vegetables are healing.

Whitney Cummings and Migraine

Whitney Cummings and migraine are not things I connected together until March. I’ve laughed at Whitney’s stand-ups and roasts. I’ve watched shows she has produced, written, directed, and acted in. But after this Emmy-nominated comedian spoke at the 5th Migraine World Summit, I now see her as another migraine teammate. It’s a weird thing when…

Migraine Monster

For years I have had a relationship with my migraine monster.  I actually have thought about naming it.  As I thought of the ugliest awful name I could give it, I vetoed the idea.  I didn’t want to give it the respect of naming it. Looking at it as anything but the monster is giving…
