The Migraine Research Foundation's goal is to end the debilitating pain of migraine. MRF raises money to fund innovative research grants to further the understanding of migraine's causes, develop improved treatment targets, and find the cure. We also help sufferers by providing information and other resources.
All our operating costs are underwritten so every dollar raised goes to fund migraine research and support sufferers.
Be part of the solution: Invest in the cure.
