The public is invited to celebrate the second “Shine Her Light” fundraiser benefiting the Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation. Migraine is an extraordinarily prevalent neurological disease, affecting 38 million people in the U.S. – 18% of women, 6% of men, 10% of children – and 1 of every 4 families in our community.
“The most difficult part of migraine disease is that it is largely unseen and misunderstood,” says Dan Henry, M.D., who specializes in headache and migraine disorders, particularly in children and young adults, at Foothill Family Clinic in Salt Lake City. “This fundraiser is an opportunity for the public to learn more about migraine disease while enjoying a fun evening benefiting our community.”
Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation works to give access to treatment and support for those
living with migraine disease, especially young adults and children. This year, the Foundation has
funded “Headache School,” in conjunction with the University of Utah, offering free bi-weekly educational
and therapeutic sessions with experts. The Foundation is also sponsoring free professionally moderated support groups for individuals between ages 13 – 19 with migraine. The ultimate goal of the Foundation is to help build a comprehensive headache treatment center in the area.
The fundraiser will be held on June 16th at 6 p.m. at the Gallivan Center and will feature dinner, spirits, and entertainment. Tickets are available now at www.daniellefoundation.org.
