Professional Athletes Show Their Support for #ResearchIsHope
Cory McGee, Team USA Track Athlete
Team USA track athlete, Cory McGee, had debilitating chronic migraine as a child. Cory found exercise was a tool to keep her attacks at bay. That coping method gave way to an impressive career as a track athlete, which includes representing Team USA at two World Championships. She is a bronze medalist and a two-time silver medalist.
Knowing first-hand just how debilitating migraine can be, Cory is using her platform to raise awareness and funds for research by teaming up with AMD for our #ResearchIsHope campaign to raise money for innovative neuroscience research.
Jon Dorenbos, Former NFL Player & America’s Got Talent Contestant
Playing in NFL football games with a migraine – not fun! Jon Dorenbos and his wife know migraine is no joke as they both have lived with the disease for as long as they can remember. He hopes the disease was not passed down to his daughter. The impact migraine has made on his life inspired Jon to take part in the AMD’s #ResearchIsHope campaign to raise awareness about why more migraine research is needed.
