About the Brain Hat Society: People with migraine, their caregivers, and their friends and family should be recognized for their heroic efforts. Stigma imposes a huge penalty in the everyday lives of patients with migraine. It increases social isolation and causes adverse consequences to self-esteem and mood. Stigmatized diseases get less research funding, and payers are less likely to pay for the treatment of stigmatized diseases. In order to reverse the stigma of migraine we need to understand why it exists. By wearing your brain hat, you are doing several things: joining a community of like-minded people who want real change about the perception of migraine, and other headache diseases, while also showing the public that migraine is a severe, neurological disease. In addition, you will show others that raising funds to alleviate a shortage of trained health care professionals who treat these diseases is necessary to help you and your fellow community members obtain better access to treatments. Finally, you will have fun wearing this hat to our events! Each time you achieve a new fundraising or attendance goal, you will receive an iron-on patch to add to your brain hat. So, please join the club!

If you are a migraine or headache disorders advocate who is not feeling up to a walk, run or volunteer assignment on the day of the event, PLEASE still plan to come join us for this important day of advocacy. We will have a quiet tent at the event for you to rest in. Come out and meet others in your community who understand life with migraine and headache disease and show your community why we need a cure!
