Why I’ve joined up with Miles for Migraine and Increased My Advocacy

Why I’ve joined up with Miles for Migraine. I recently got a flashback of one of my first posts ever.  It was super exciting to see how far I’ve come and how I’m meeting my goals from  4 years ago.  This post explains how I want to help children and be part of a charity that raises funds for migraine and lowers stigma.

I’m proud to say I’ve found it and I AM saying “Wow, look how far we’ve come.”  If you see my post about Miles for Migraine it’s because I feel strongly that it is making a financial and community difference.

After the 2 races we participated in, Team My Migraine Life raised $2,192.91.

Why I’ve joined up with Miles for Migraine

I was asked to give my patient’s perspective on both races.  I also donated 9 inches of my hair between this time!  We raised funds, raised awareness, and lowered the stigma for migraine.  My children were at both events to hear me speak and are not only learning about their mom at each event but how it affects so many others!  We will be the ones to make a change and we will be the ones to pave the way for a less painful stigmatized future.  I’m so proud!

Migraine Symptoms: Prodrome Migraine

Migraine symptoms can be so tricky. I never know if I’m coming out of an attack or rolling into another. Understanding the timeline of a migraine attack is important although there are many overlapping symptoms before, during, and after a migraine attack. The migraine prodrome phase is where migraine symptoms begin. When thinking of the…

    This is very inspiring. I’ve always had it in the back of my mind to do something like a fun run (or walk in my case) for the migraine trust. I’m definitely going to give it a try this year.
    Thank you ????
