Help Christina raise money

For participating in Miles for Migraine Race - Philadelphia, 2017

My Story…

I'm participating in a walk/run for migraine research! Please consider donating $5 or whatever you can spare. Migraine receives very little research funding, despite the VERY significant impact it has on so many people. A lot of people use the word "migraine" to describe a bad headache, but migraine is actually a serious neurological disorder akin to other brain-related disorders like epilepsy. Besides severe pain, it can cause vision changes, numbness, pins and needles, stroke-like symptoms, tingling, paralysis, speech changes, vomiting/nausea, brain damage (lesions), etc. And there are very few effective treatments available. Migraine ruins lives, and it's time for it receive the attention it deserves in the medical community. This is a very personal issue to me, as I've suffered with worsening chronic migraine for past nine years, and I'm super grateful to anyone who can contribute to the cause.

Donate to help Christina raise money for Miles for Migraine Race - Philadelphia, 2017’s fundraising campaign.
