Migraine is a chronic neurological disease, affecting 1 in 4 families. It’s one of the world’s most disabling diseases. We’re funding research to discover the causes, improve the treatments and find a cure.
Real Life"The pain. It is as if someone injected battery acid into the lining of my brain and spinal cord and set it on fire. Like habanero pepper juice is being thrown in my eyes while jack hammers are making quick work of my jaw line. You know when someone speaks into a microphone in a room with great acoustics and the feedback produces that loud, high pitched squeal? This is what I hear in my ears."
If you don't suffer from migraine, the pain Laura describes is unimaginable. But 38 million Americans experience similar symptoms - and, amazingly, about 14 million of them endure migraine every day.
The Migraine Research Foundation is the only organization in the U.S. dedicated solely to funding innovative migraine research. MRF's overhead is completely underwritten by members of our Board, so 100% of your donation goes directly to migraine research.
