The goal of the petition is to help end the federal neglect of chronic disabling headache disorders.
The action alert email reads:
Migraine and other chronic headache disorders cause tremendous suffering, disability, and economic costs in the US. Federal research funding agencies, such as the NIH, have neglected this burden partly because Members of Congress, with oversight of these agencies, are unaware of the huge scope of the problem.
A US congressional hearing has never been devoted to headache disorders. We seek to remedy this and educate your Members of Congress. But we need your help.
Right now, we ask you to please sign an on-line petition urging congressional hearings to be held on the impact of headache disorders. It takes only a minute to sign and we will deliver the signed petition to Congress.
Also, please forward this email to everyone and anyone that cares about someone suffering with a disabling headache disorder. Please ask them to sign too, and then pass the email further onwards.
Together, we can ensure that our lawmakers in Washington, DC appreciate the urgent need to reduce the huge burden of migraine and headache disorders.
Thank you very much, and happy Thanksgiving.
