Shades for migraine prizes

We won in the pet and funniest categories.

Shades for migraine funniest winner

This picture was taken with my daughter, this summer.  It was her first year on the swim team and it was a summer of ribbons, laps, friends and fun.  She won the most dedicated award at the end of the season for her age range.  Her dedication, willingness to practice and bravery should be a lesson for us all.

Never give up, keep trying and take each stroke at a time.

The cap that I am wearing is a “brain hat” from Miles for Migraine.  Miles for Migraine recognizes its migraine sufferers/fighters with a purple cap and supporters with a pink cap.

 

We had fun with this photo.  Here’s a behind the scenes look….

Shades for migraine pets category winner

 

When I saw that my sweet Lucia won, I cried.  Ok, so it doesn’t take more than a glance of her to make me cry….but this time I was proud.

As most of you know, we lost Lucia this summer and she was My Migraine and Life warrior.  Seeing that she won, even after her passing made me so proud.  I’m proud that she continues to advocate for migraine and proud that she was my supporter everyday.

I feel so lucky to have had her in my life for 13 years.  She was my best friend and my migraine side kick during the hardest years of my life (so far).

Because of her, I feel like a winner!  I will always hold the time we had together as my reward.

 

Thank you again to all who voted………

Miles for Migraine Cleveland 2020

Miles for Migraine Cleveland 2020 was scheduled for Saturday July 18. Due to COVID-19 we will be doing our regular event virtually. It will look a lot different than Miles for Migraine 2019 and 2018. It looks a lot more like virtual 2017 before we were adding many cities around the United States. I am sad that we…

    I meant to ask you about this a little while ago as I wasn’t sure when the winner would be drawn. It’s such an amazing way to pay tribute to Lucia, too. Huuuuuuge congratulations – it’s very well deserved and I’m so happy for you! 😀
