Random Notes: MRF, Petition, and Wego Health Judges Panel

Migraine Research Foundation:    
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, all new donations made to the Migraine Research Foundation this last week of the year, December 26-31st, will be matched dollar-for-dollar! That means your gift of any amount will double its value to Migraine Research Foundation! $10 will become $20; $50 will become $100. Every dollar counts

Your donation strengthens our mission to invest in critical new research -- the only way to prevent migraine, develop effective treatments, and cure it! With your help, we can continue our fight to end the debilitating pain of migraine and help the 1 in 4 American families affected by this disease.

Since all of their costs are underwritten, 100% of your donation goes to fund research and support sufferers!
Urge Congressional Hearings on the Impact of Migraine and Headache Disorders
I want to remind you of the Alliance for Headache Disorders Action Alert I shared about in a November post. This petition is a real petition that Migraine and Headache Disorder Health Activists will be taking to the AHDA's annual Headache on the Hill event in Washington DC in March! The first step to getting funding  for research is to get awareness which is what this petition is for: getting a congressional hearing on the impact of Migraine and headache disorders on the individual but also the country. It takes two minutes to sign this petition and can make a huge difference. Please take a moment to read it, be horrified at the statistics, sign it, and pass it on to your friends/family. If we do not stand up for ourselves, then we have NO right to complain.

Announcing the Wego Health Activist Awards Judges
I'm really excited to share that I have been selected to be a judge for the Wego Health Activist Awards. As a reminder, you can keep nominating for the ten different awards up until December 31st!   This year I have found my passion to be more involved in the health activism side of my disease and pleased to get to read and learn from the health activists that were nominated.
