Stand Up and Stand Together Against Migraine

Migraine might be invisible, but the men, women and children living with this disease every day are not. It is time we all stand up, and stand together to bring migraine out of the darkness. The American Migraine Foundation invites the over 1 billion people worldwide living with migraine to join in the fight against this disabling disease, because when we stand together, no one stands alone.
