This is the time of year when we reflect on what’s important.
------------- Here’s what’s important to MRF:
We want to support as many deserving projects as we can raise the funds for. All our operating costs are underwritten, so your donation goes directly to fund migraine research and help sufferers. We’re not building bank accounts or endowments; we’re supporting bold and innovative migraine research.
Our kids are a priority. We intend to move the science of childhood migraine forward.
Women are a priority. There are three times as many female sufferers as male. We need to get to the bottom of this astonishing disparity.
We don’t know what causes migraine yet. Investing in research is the only way to develop effective treatments, find ways to prevent migraine and to cure it!
Please help ensure that our important work continues. Every donation moves us a step closer to learning migraine’s secrets and ending the suffering.
We wish you a happy, peaceful, and pain-free New Year!
