A Second Chance to Relive a Once-in-a-Lifetime Moment

A Second Chance to Relive a Once-in-a-Lifetime Moment

Migraine

I wanted to tell you about a recent initiative that I'm really excited about. HealthyWomen has teamed up with The National Headache Foundation and Allergan, Inc., to raise awareness of the disabling symptoms and burden of chronic migraine, as well as offer a special opportunity for people living with this condition.

I'm so pleased to announce the first winner of the national Rewrite Your Day contest, which will award 15 people the chance to work with celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss, one of the most sought-after event planners in the United States, to re-create a special moment lost to chronic migraine.

Patrice Johnson of Prairieville, Louisiana, is the first of 15 winners that will work with Weiss to re-create a special moment. Patrice, who has lived with chronic migraine for more than 15 years, experienced a debilitating migraine on her wedding day that left her unable to enjoy the ceremony and the reception. Weiss will re-create an intimate vow renewal ceremony for Patrice and her husband this December, timed closely to their third wedding anniversary. Read Patrice's story.

People living with chronic migraine, a neurological condition characterized by a diagnosis of migraine and headaches on 15 or more days per month with headache lasting four hours a day or longer, often miss out on special moments with their loved ones. Have you or has someone you love missed a special time because of chronic migraine? This contest will remain open through December 30, 2011, and I encourage those of you living with chronic migraine to visit www.RewriteYourDay.com to enter the contest, learn more about chronic migraine and find a headache specialist in your area to help manage your condition.
