Migraine is one of the world’s most disabling illnesses. As a migraine sufferer myself, I know how excruciatingly painful and debilitating migraines can be. Migraine attacks often disrupt family events, interfere with productivity at home and work and even cause one to miss days of school or work. Millions of people around the world suffer from migraine--severely impacting millions of lives-yet little is known about its causes and effective treatments have proved to be elusive. With millions of people suffering from migraine and so little known about it, it is astonishing that so little money is devoted to research. The only hope for migraine sufferers lies in more and better research - to discover the causes, improve the treatments, and ultimately, find a cure.
Running the NYC marathon is one of my dreams. It is also my dream to be totally free from the unimaginable pain of chronic migraine someday. I am determined to help find a cure for this debilitating illness by running in the 2014 TCS NYC Marathon this November and raise money for the Migraine Research Foundation (MRF) which funds innovative research grants.
I hope that you can support Team MRF, all the migraine sufferers, and me by donating to this cause. All proceeds will go to MRF. Any increment will be very much appreciated. Thank you very much for your generosity!
