MAGNUM has long held the belief that one of the ramifications of Migraine disease is the negative economic impact on the Migraine sufferer. Therefore we created the concept of operating with an "Open Membership" policy. That is we do not charge for membership, access to "special" Web pages, or services. We wanted all who came to MAGNUM to be a "member" simply by visiting www.migraines.org (also www.migraineawarenessgroup.com & www.migraineawarenessgroup.org) or our online publication www.MigraineBlog.com & www.MigraineBlog.org. As many organizations change a membership fee, we felt that many disabled by Migraine did not need any extra costs while looking for help.
This new concept of an Open Membership also meant we needed to reach out to the public and healthcare industry for funding our mission. In particular we have felt that those corporations who profit from manufacturing FDA approved medical products that help control the suffering of the Migraineur could help fund our mission. To that fact, we are grateful to have many in the medical industry's support. Some such as GlaxoSmithKline, have been offering un-restricted educational grants for a decade, which shows their and other in the medical industry strong belief and support of our mission.
Last but not least we want
to thank those Migraineurs, their friends, and loved ones for their kind
donations and strong words of support, gratitude, and for always
praising us for taking on this difficult mission. MAGNUM, The National
Migraine Association, is grateful for any and all economic, services, or
other support as we continue our fight to educate the public and
government about Migraine disease. And by doing so seek to facilitate
improving access to better care and promoting changes in laws to help
Migraine disease sufferers (as well as all headache, head-pain, and pain
sufferers) have a better, more productive and fulfilling lives.
