Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge #18: "The Price Is Right"

AwarenessMonth2012BC2 Today's prompt is:
Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge #18: "The Price Is Right" What one thing would you do for the Migraine community if money were no issue?
If money were no object, my choice is abundantly clear...

We need research to answer some basic questions about Migraine - Who, What, Where Why, When and How.

Why this kind of research?

This is the research necessary for us to develop new UNIQUE drugs, treatments and therapies to help us.  

If you've read my blog at all this past month, you'll already know that these are the questions big Pharma can't answer for us.  Their jobs are to take the information we already have about how Migraine happens in our bodies and design treatments based on that knowledge... which by the way, is very minimal at present. 

It takes public funding for this kind of research. 

I would also add that since money is no issue, Teri Robert's idea on to  create an endowment fund for the purpose of this research would assure that funding would continue to be available not only for us, but for our children, and their children, and their children - a virtual bottomless pit of research opportunities!

So, now it's time for me to go buy a couple of lottery tickets I guess LOL.
