Migraine & Headache Awareness Month Blog

For the second year in a row, we will feature daily blog posts from the headache disease community. You hear and learn from seasoned advocates and those who are speaking up for the very first time. We encourage you to read and share the entries below via your personal social media channels. You can do so using the buttons at the bottom of each blog entry. Thank you for your support of all of these bloggers. Sharing your personal story is a great way to become an advocate. If interested in sharing your own story, find out which CHAMP participants offer those opportunities
