Donate to the association of migraine disorders using cryptocurrency

With a mission to expand the understanding of migraine disease, the Association of Migraine Disorders has a goal to fund three migraine research projects by the end of 2021 with the help of your generous donations.

Despite being one of the most prevalent diseases in the world, migraine research is severely underfunded. National Institutes of Health funding for migraine research is less than 2% of federal funding for neurodegenerative diseases and less than 1% of funding for chronic diseases (Per NIH).

Patient Stories

Eula Moore-Marshall

“I’ve dealt with menstrual headaches as a teenager, but nothing like the pain I started to experience while serving in the military in December 1990 while in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. My head throbbed, I would abruptly stop in the middle of working, walking, or talking and squeeze my eyes and hold my head. I would have daily pain, training became difficult to perform, I couldn’t rest as steady work was required of me. No one understood and no one would listen. I was labeled a complainer, someone who was lazy and faking it. I didn’t know that what I was experiencing were migraines until I returned home. I just called them headaches. After returning home and establishing my daily routine, I was still experiencing pain all day. Lying in bed would make it throb more.”

“I was afraid to have children because I did not know how sick I would become during pregnancy, and because I did not want to pass my illness on to my children. After I had been episodic for five years, I became pregnant with my daughter, two years later I had my son.

My daughter, Skylar, experienced occasional migraines throughout preschool until second grade. She is nine now and they have become less frequent. My son, Kolten, experiences migraine more often and sometimes vomits. Occasionally his migraines are quite severe. Skylar takes care of Kolten and me when we are not feeling well. Our family likes to have movie parties when someone has a migraine. We watch superhero movies to make us feel strong. Skylar makes the popcorn and we all lie in bed together. IronMan makes Kolten feel the strongest. Black Widow is Skylar’s favorite superhero. Mom’s favorite changes all the time. We use positive mental imagery and our family’s love to get us through.”
