For the fourth consecutive year, the National Headache Foundation is raising funds on Giving Tuesday, November 30th, to provide support and resources to veterans and active-duty military living with migraine disease and headache disorders. The National Headache Foundation believes it is vital to reach out to these men and women who have served our country by providing resources to better understand and manage their pain and to cope with neurological trauma effectively.
More than 430,000 U.S. service members were diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from 2000 to 2020. The cause of TBI is typically due to blast exposure, and this has been especially prevalent among troops who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. These types of brain injuries can lead to post-traumatic headache disorder, where headache and migraine can show up weeks or months after an injury and the debilitating symptoms can last for years.
As a token of our gratitude, any person who donates to the NHF on Giving Tuesday will receive an NHF hot/cold pack. CLICK HERE TO DONATE
