Migraine Research - Please email your Senator TODAY!

We need and deserve better treatments, but we're unlikely to get them until the NIH increases the funding for basic Migraine and headache research.

Each of us CAN make a difference. Please read the letter below and follow the link to email your Senators NOW.




Please Email Your Senator Today!

Our efforts last month to urge members of the US House of Representatives to support increases in NIH funding for research on headache disorders were highly successful. Twelve Representatives signed the Obey/Walsh letter. This is an outstanding result for the first mobilization of our numbers, and we are optimistic that it will be enough to have our message appended to the House appropriations bill.

It is now time to contact your US Senators for the same purpose. Unfortunately our window of opportunity is only narrowly open. The letter with Senators' signatures must be submitted by today, April 4th.

  1. Please take just 5 minutes RIGHT NOW to go directly to and send your message to your two US Senators
  2. Please forward this email right away to anyone else concerned about the inadequate state of care for patients with headache disorders.

Only with increased research will new effective treatments for headache disorders become available. And only with your help will such research activities increase to levels appropriate to the huge scale of this problem. The larger our voice, the greater will be our impact.

Thanks again for your efforts.
