Hey you wonderful blog readers! Just dropping a quick note to let you know that I’m walking to raise money for migraine research & care this weekend.
There’s no cure (yet) for migraine disorders like mine, yet the Global Burden of Disease Study indicated that “migraine is one of the main contributors to disability worldwide” (according to Dr. Wijeratne in a Migraine World Summit interview).
The UCSF Headache Center here in San Francisco is one of many, many clinics that are understaffed and generally under-resourced. I waited months to be seen there for treatment back in 2019, and I was in constant pain while I waited.
If you read my blog, you know my journey and struggle. I really hope you’ll consider donating to my walk to raise funds for the UCSF Headache Center, so they can do more research and pay more doctors!
