Walk a mile in a migraine-sufferer’s shoes and make changes to prevent triggers

Individuals and business must be more caring for those with this invisible disease”

— Dr. Frederick Godley

OTTAWA/NORTH KINGSTOWN, CANADA/U.S.A, June 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Chocolate Moose Media’s penguins are at it again in a second short, animated video for the Association of Migraine Disorders (AMD) supporting migraine sufferers worldwide.

This version, called Show You Care: Make Your Workplace Migraine Friendly, uses the little tuxedo-ed creatures to show how it feels to walk in a sufferer’s shoes and offers suggestions about changes that can be made in the office and at home to diminish migraine triggers.

“When people cannot see something like a rash or a cast (to indicate a migraine episode), it reduces empathy….(and with this video) we are raising people’s awareness that individuals and business must be more caring for those with this invisible disease,” says Dr. Frederick Godley, president of the AMD.

Migraine headaches affect 12 percent of the population and are more common than Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis combined.

A third video will be released closer to World Migraine Solidarity Day (June 21) urging people to wear a pair of sunglasses to display their support for sufferers.
