My Story…

Have you ever experienced a migraine attack? Or know someone who has? It's excruciating, bring you down to your knees pain. It is a disease that isn't recognized as a major concern yet the CDC saw about 4.3% of Americans being affected in 2021. With about over 1 Billion people worldwide. It doesn't have a cure and doesn't get the attention it deserves. 

Please help me raise some awareness for hospitals and Doctors to learn more about this debilitating pain that affects not just women and men, but children as well. My son has been getting migraine attacks since he was 9. Nothing is worse than seeing your child suffer in pain and you as their parent unable to help them. 

I have been getting migraine attacks since my teens and they have aggressively progressed in my 40s. I am a marathon runner and fight to stay active but this neurological setback tests me because migraine affects your entire body, not just your head. It feels like I have the body of a 90-year-old, trapped in the mind of an active, wanting to do so much 30-year-old person. It is hard to live a life when your body forces you to live it from your bed. Going to the emergency room to get the"migraine cocktail" can't be the only answer for us migraine fighters. We need help and we need YOU. I am here to help be the voice of myself, my husband, my son, my friend, your aunt, your brother, and anyone else who suffers from this insane pain. So help me help you.

Help me help the world understand that migraine is not just a headache.

Thank you for your time and support.
