Out of My Head Film Screening and Fundraiser

I’m working to bring a screening of the film OUT OF MY HEAD, about the neurological disease migraine, to our local movie theater. Screenings of this documentary are happening across the country, smashing stereotypes around this shockingly common, stigmatized and misunderstood condition. It’s not just a really bad headache!
You can view the film’s trailer here: https://outofmyheadfilm.com/index.php - trailer
I really want people to see this important and fascinating film, which is why I’m reaching out to you for support. The screening will only take place if we get 42 people to reserve tickets. You will only be charged for the ticket if we’re successful in getting the minimum number.
I am also taking donations for the Association of Migraine Disorders to help support migraine research, advocacy programs and educational tools. 100% of all proceeds donated go towards these areas.  Every dollar counts!  You can add a donation during the reservation process (see below).

The screening is planned for April 13, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at Regal Cinemas Fredericksburg 14 located at 3301 Plank Road Route 3W, Fredericksburg, VA. If you plan on attending, please reserve your ticket at https://gathr.us/screening/22985.
Remember, you will only be charged for the ticket if we’re successful in getting the minimum number of 42 reservations.
Please help me spread the word about this event, I am so excited to share this with the community. But I can’t do it without YOU - so please reserve your ticket today at this link - https://gathr.us/screening/22985.
See you there!

Do you live with a snorer? I do and that does not mix well with chronic migraine and insomnia. My husband always snored, but for the most part it wasn’t a nightly occurrence. That is, until two years ago. The snoring started becoming louder, longer and eventually he’d stop breathing from time to time. Scary! After much urging, I finally got him to see our doctor about it.

Headache On The Hill 2018

Last Tuesday marked the 11th year of Headache on the Hill and my first time as a participant.  Headache on the Hill (HOH) is an annual lobbying event put together by the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy (AHDA).  Participants include health professionals, migraine and cluster headache advocates, patients and caregivers.  They come together with specific requests or "asks" for Congress.  The asks usually focus on raising awareness of headache disorders in order to impact the increase in NIH funding for research into headache, cluster, migraine, and pain.
