Cindy McCain, Migraine Advocate

Last week was a great one for all of us with Migraine disease. We've been wishing for ages for a Migraineur who is very visible to the public to take up our cause, and it has happened at last.

Cindy McCain, wife of Senator John McCain, came forward last week. She not only shared about her own situation with Migraine, she came forward to advocate for all of us.

Author and patient advocate was there and interviewed Mrs. McCain. Among other things, Mrs. McCain told Teri,

"I'm going to put together an action committee to go door-to-door in Congress, particularly the Senate, to make them understand... to make them understand how little research there is, the huge number of people impacted... to make them understand what the economic problems caused by Migraine are too. We need to testify in front of Congress."

Sounds good to me! I hope you'll take a few minutes to read what else she told Teri during the interview. You can find it in Interview with Cindy McCain: Migraine Sufferer, Advocate.

And to Teri, thanks for always being there to represent us and get us all the information possible! Oh, and thanks for allowing me to use your photo!
