WHY I STARTED THE ABLER: PLEASE READ, SHARE, EDUCATE YOURSELVES LIVES DEPEND ON IT.

Take a moment and give it a read and share for me (call it an early birthday present): Cluster Headaches. Please take a moment and research this condition (quick YouTube and/or Google search). I have been a chronic cluster headache sufferer for about 5 years now. This is THE MOST painful condition known to mankind.

For all the strides that society takes in their attempts to make us feel a part of society, while the intention is a good start it is NOT enough. We are more Then a hashtag, or sixty second sound bite in a political endorsement. We are people and deserve any equal opportunity in this world like anyone else. Does it …
