Combine migraine and migraine advocacy and you basically have my every day life buttoned up!
I've been living with migraine disease for almost 32 years. I've been chronic (meaning more than 15 days a month) for about 9 years now.
Migraine has impacted my career, my relationships, my hobbies, my independence and most of all my physical and emotional health. The biggest misconception about migraine is that it's a headache. It's so much more. Headache is only 1 of the many symptoms that make this such a disabling disease.
I refuse to be sidelined or sit quietly an accept the status quo of limited research funding, disease stigma and a lack of effective treatment options. I have turned to migraine advocacy as a way to redirect my frustrations and work to get us to a cure one day.
Any donation you can make will be appreciated. I am especially passionate about THIS Miles for Migraine event because it benefits research at my local headache clinic at UVM.
Donate to help Katie raise money for Miles for Migraine - Burlington 2019’s fundraising campaign.
