Migraine Awareness Month #10: Name the Spokesperson
Today's Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge prompt is to choose any celebrity to represent Migraine (whether they have Migraine or not). Who would it be, and why?
Well, first off, I have missed a few days again. Stupid migraines. I'll pick up here and go on.
If I could choose any celebrity to represent Migraine, I believe I would choose Hillary Clinton. I would let her finish her term as Secretary of State, possibly, or maybe not, but either way, she's at an all time high in favorability ratings, and that's not likely to drop, and like her husband, she will have a long, long life in the public eye whether she is actually working in government or not. She has been a torch-bearer for healthcare and related causes, and when she speaks, people listen. While Migraine isn't just a women's issue, it affects women predominantly, and Hillary is one of the strongest and loudest voices in the public square when it comes to speaking about issues affecting women. She has relationships with policymakers, she has relationships with those who could raise funds for research, and she gets the attention we need to shed light on our struggle with migraine and make Migraines visible for us. Hillary Clinton would be the ideal representative for Migraine Disease.
National Migraine Awareness Month is initiated by the National Headache Foundation. The Blogger's Challenge is initiated by www.FightingHeadacheDisorders.com.
