The INvisible Project: Migraine second edition was published at the end of May, just in time for the start of Migraine and Headache Awareness Month. The magazine features the stories and photos of 10 individuals living with migraine and headache disorders, building on the first INvisible Project: Migraine edition that was released last year.
“We are so thrilled to once again highlight the challenges and triumphs of people living with migraine and headache disorder,” says Nicole Hemmenway, interim CEO of U.S. Pain. “This population is too often overlooked and undertreated.”
The individuals featured range from a headache specialist who lives with headache herself, Abigail Chua, DO, to entire families affected by migraine, like the Lineberrys, and even a couple whose cluster headaches brought them together — Ashley Hattle and Andrew Cleminshaw.
Perhaps the most profound story, however, is that of Melissa Dwyer, who ended her own life at the age of 22 because of chronic migraine disease. The words of her sister, brother and mother weave together to form a heart-wrenching perspective of what it’s like to lose a loved one due to migraine.
U.S. Pain Foundation thanks its platinum sponsors of the issue for its publication possible.
