More than 45 million Americans suffer from headaches annually

NEW YORK, June 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In teaming up with the National Headache Foundation (NHF), EHE International is helping raise awareness about headaches, which affect more than 45 million Americans annually. In a unique approach, the NHF and EHE are featuring "You ... and Your Headache: It's Personal" within a 115 square-foot display window at 10 Rockefeller Plaza, for the month of June, to coincide with National Headache Awareness Week June 7-13.

"We appreciate the generous donation of this window space by EHE International to help the NHF call attention to a complex, yet common condition. While headaches may be a nuisance for some, they can be debilitating for others," says Suzanne E. Simons, executive director of the NHF. "This window display has the potential to reach an audience that a website or a public service announcement might not."

Each year, 90% of all men and 95% of all women have at least one headache (1). Despite many people having frequent and sometimes severe headaches that affect their family, social and work life, most do not actively seek relief from their condition (2). Experts say the complacency is puzzling because relief is available, but begins with an understanding that headaches are very personal.

We are happy to support the NHF in their efforts to raise awareness and help those suffering from this debilitating disease says Deborah McKeever, President of EHE International.

The window display is part of a larger program being implemented by the NHF that is designed to educate people about the personal nature of headaches, the personal approach to care that is needed to get relief, and the potential life-changing resources available through the NHF. The window display also highlights a new fundraiser launched by the NHF in May called the "Migraine Million" campaign.

"Our goal is for one million of the nearly 30 million people with migraine to donate $1 each toward headache education and research," says Simons. To donate, visit www.headaches.org.
