She decided she needed to help us find a cure after missing almost a whole year of school
14-year-old MRF Ambassador Ayla has already had a diagnosis of chronic migraine for over a year.
After missing almost a whole year of school due to her migraines, Ayla finally got to a place where they were manageable. She decided it was the perfect time to get involved. She launched her long-term Defeating Migraines Together fundraiser beginning Migraine Awareness Month 2016.
In June 2016 alone, Ayla raised so much more than she expected that she had to keep raising her goal!
Next, she’ll be approaching local businesses in Illinois to ask them to display and sell her custom migraine pens, with proceeds benefiting MRF.
You can read all about her fundraising and awareness plans, as well as get more of her personal story on her Defeating Migraines Together website.
