THE STORY:

Kirsten Fresh-Winchester wrote -

My name is Kirsten Winchester. I have suffered chronic migraines & optical/aura migraines starting when I was 20. I've tried every medicine under the sun, to no avail. My husband has watched for the last ten years as my migraines have gotten worse; most months I have more then 15 migraines a month. With 36 million sufferers of migraine, it is the 4th most disabling illness on the planet (as listed by the World Health Organization, WHO). Chronic migraine is even more debilitating. And people with aura migraines have been shown to have an increased risk of stroke and heart attack. Sadly, there hasn't been any new medicines developed for migraines over the last 30 years, until just recently. That's a VERY long time! The two new treatments are electrostimulation of the brain and studies of CGRP antibodies. But those kinds of studies rely on donations. My husband is training for a 50 mile ultra run. A few weeks ago he saw the story of Ted Jackson and his running to raise money for MS. Ted Jackson's wife has MS. Inspired by this man he decided to use this run, that he's already been training for and turn it into a fundraiser....for research that could one day benefit me. He's looking for sponsors to donate to his run. He'll be running on September 26th. ALL money received will go to the Association of Migraine Disorders ( www.migrainedisorders.org). They partner with the Migraine Research Foundation ( www.migraineresearchfoundation.org) in granting monies to the research, study, and search for a cure. Please consider donating to my husband's ultra run. Thank you. Kirsten
