Michael Fernandez- Migraine Discussions

Patient Leader

I'm a 24 year old terminal vasculitis, Cluster Headache, Neuropathy, Asthma, and Chronic Migraine advocate who has been writing now for 1 year working to build a loyal audience. I write poems and articles that not only help others with their pain but allow them to feel less alone preventing suicide attempts and getting some people a diagnosis! All I can hope for is to do more in the future for those in any kind of chronic pain! My website will soon change names to Voice of the Patients! I am also a volunteer for several nonprofits, filming footage for a migraine documentary, and am a member of organizations like AHMA, US PAIN, the Migraine Research Foundation, and the Cluster Busters.
