Migraine Awareness Month - Post # 10: Choose a Celebrity Migraine Spokesperson

Today's Blogging Prompt is: 
"Choose any celebrity to represent Migraine (whether they have Migraine or not) who would it be and why?" 
 Arianna Huffington.  

I think of Arianna Huffington as a modern-day Renaissance woman.  She is the editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, and is a prolific author. She won a Pulitzer in 2012. In 2009, Arianna was named one of the most influential women in media by Forbes, and has been recognized by The Guardian and Time magazine as one of the world's top 100 people in media.  She ran for governor of California in a 2003 recall election.  She has been a lobbyist for the use of alternative fuels.

She knows the political landscape. She knows how to work all facets of the media.   She is a skilled writer and relentless promoter of causes she holds dear.  Anyone who writes a book entitled "On Becoming Fearless...In Love, Work, and Life"  could influence millions of migraineurs. 

I believe she has the power and ability to successfully rally for the advancement of migraine education, research, and support through media advocacy and political lobbying. 

She has my vote for champion of the Migraine Movement; motivating researchers, foundations, big Pharma, physicians, policymakers, employers and migraineurs toward  more equitable treatment, research, drug development, funding, and recognition of this debilitating neurological disease.
