Help Isabella raise money

For participating in Miles for Migraine - Cincinnati 2020

My Story…

Hey everyone!! Thanks so much for visiting my fundraising page for this awesome and fun run/walk! I am so excited to be a part of something that affects me personally, and to help raise money for more research and care for those suffering from migraines! My family has even created "Isabella's Migraine Mashers", as a team to participate together and help support me! As many of you may or may not know, I have been suffering from chronic migraines since the 2nd grade! I am currently under the care of Dr. Ann Pakalnis at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, and see her every 4-5 months for monitoring and check ups! I take daily medication twice a day to help manage my symptoms and headaches, and also have a rescue medication I take should I get a migraine. Migraines are more than just a headache, and have taken me out of school, physical activities and time with my family and friends! Migraines have taken a big toll on me personally, and affect more kids than you may think or know. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, about 10% of school-aged children suffer from migraine, and up to 28% of adolescents between the ages of 15-19 are affected by it. Half of all migraine sufferers have their first attack before age 12. I would greatly appreciate it if you could donate any amount to help me on this journey, and support myself and others like me!
