A letter from Linda Howell, Family Services Team Leader

Family Services is a place where we try to assist families sorting through the problems that arise due to Cluster Headaches. This site is for questions from supporters as well as sufferers, because as we have learned this condition affects every aspect of our lives and every person in it.

.Let me introduce myself.  .My name is Linda Howell and I’ve been a chronic sufferer for 24 years.

Jackie is a long time supporter to her husband.  Her words of wisdom around these parts are legendary and I have the utmost respect for her and am thankful she is a part of my team.  .

We welcome any and all questions as to how we can help.  Feel free to e-mail me with a question and we will do our very best to help you. It may be to provide links to help your specific problem or research data that you may not be able to find. If need be, we can call you personally and talk to you one on one.  We are not doctors, but have years of experience in dealing with Cluster Headaches, and have the very latest research on treatments and preventatives, as well as abortives like oxygen.
You are not alone in this fight and never will be again.
