We've all worked really hard to build up OUCH and maybe when someone asks, "Why should I join?" we just get a little touchy.
OUCH is the Organization for Understanding Cluster Headaches and our membership dues are $25 per year. Our members are working very hard to try to see that CH is wiped out in our lifetime, but to do this we have to work together. First we have to find out the cause. THEN researchers can work on a cure. This will take time and money. Meantime all we can do is offer each other support and work on problems in the here and now (ie., insurance, the medical community, ER rooms, etc.) But as an organization we can work with strength. Individually we're shooting in the dark like we've always done.
That's WHY we send donations to OUCH.
