All of our operating costs are covered, so 100% of every donation goes to fund research.
Investing in research is starting to pay off. MRF funding has supported research that:
- Discovered that female sufferers of migraine with aura are at increased risk of stroke in later life.
- Found that brief behavioral interventions, especially cognitive behavioral therapy, may reduce headache frequency and anxiety in children.
- Demonstrated the promise of a brief behavioral sleep intervention for migraine patients, suggesting that directly treating co-occurring insomnia may improve migraine itself.
- Showed that prolonged frequent use of triptan medication, intended to relieve headaches, may in fact induce headaches.
We've begun to see some important results, but there is still so much to learn.
Every donation brings us one step closer to learning migraine's secrets. Invest in a cure.
