How did you get involved with Miles for Migraine?

My journey of becoming an advocate for Miles for Migraine started a little over a year ago, I wanted to be with people that understood my disease. I also wanted to be able to tell my story about the information that I have learned to help myself and help others deal with our daily disease. I am a chronic Migraine patient, I have learned that we are all here for each other.

How did it help you with your migraine journey?

Since getting more involved with Miles for Migraine, it is like having a second family for support. We all encourage each other that we are not alone in this journey of this invisible daily disease. The more we learn about our disease it can help us stay strong.

Fun Fact:

I am a semi professional photographer.
