2014 Migraine Conference Update 

As you know, earlier this year HMF announced that we would be putting on a week long conference for the HM community. Unfortunately, we are going to have to postpone this event. We have had a difficult time raising enough funds to continue to pay the Foundation Group. The Foundation Group is the company we hired to process our 501c3 Status, which allows a Non-Profit to remain tax-exempt. Because we are not officially 501c3, we have been unable to obtain the level of sponsorship this type of function requires. To learn more about 501c3, please visit http://www.501c3.org/what-is-a-501c3/. HMF is a Non-Profit Organization in the state of Texas, but again, we have not met monetary requirements to continue to pursue the 501c3 status. Until then, we will not be able to hold a conference of this size.  All those who have already paid deposits or any monies have been contacted and/or reimbursed. 

Starting in January 2014 we will begin fundraising specifically to pay the Foundation Group to continue our application process. We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this may have caused you. 

HMF is a great organization for us all, we just ask for patience as all Board Members also have HM. We are doing our best and are also looking into new Board Members who do not suffer with HM or other illness in order to provide continuity of service. If you know of someone who would be interested in joining our Board of Directors and has prior experience with Non-Profit Organizations, please have them submit a resume and letter of interest to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you HMF Family!
