Winning Photo Dramatizes Dangers of Sports Concussion

Daniel Newman of Katonah, NY walked away with top honors from Nikon for his powerful photo of a young man receiving a nerve block injection for his debilitating migraines caused by a sports concussion. Out of 14,000 entries, Daniel’s image of his brother Eric won the top prize in Nikon’s “I am Next” contest. But more important, says Daniel, the image enables him to take the message about the dangers of concussions in young athletes to a larger audience.

Nancy Harris Bonk is a patient advocate and educator who has been helping patients empower themselves by taking an active role in their health care since 2003. Nancy experienced what she now knows were menstrually related Migraines during puberty. She was able to manage these with over the counter medications for many years. One December morning in 1996, Nancy’s life changed forever. She slipped and fell on a patch of black ice in her driveway, hitting her head, hard. She had sustained a traumatic brain injury or TBI.

“The leading scientists and physicians of the American Headache Society and American Migraine Foundation have launched the 36 Million Migraine Campaign. The campaign aims to both raise awareness of the suffering of so many Americans, and raise a dollar for every patient with migraine in the US. This will finally change attitudes toward and the stigma attached to this disorder and those who suffer, as well as raise funding that will rapidly accelerate the pace of research and the development of more effective and better tolerated treatments.”

Our Mission

The mission of the American Migraine Foundation is to support innovative research and education that will lead to improvement in the lives of those who suffer from migraine and other disabling headaches.
