(KUTV) Salt Lake City - Did you know 1 out of 4 American families are affected by migraines? Migraines are the sixth most disabling disease in the U.S. and are more prevalent than asthma and diabetes combined. Yet migraines are one of the most misunderstood and underfunded diseases. Dr. Dan Henry and Elizabeth Henry Weyher with the Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation stopped by Fresh Living to talk about how they're trying to change that.
The Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation has established two new programs: Headache School in conjunction with the University of Utah and a Support Group for Adolescents with Migraine.
The foundation is also hosting a big fundraiser event called "Shine Her Light" on Friday, June 16th at the Gallivan Center. The fundraiser runs from 6 am to 10 pm and is open to the public. "Shine Her Light" will feature great food, spirits, and entertainment.
