Well the  meeting was a resounding success - we were fully booked and 180 people took prt in the biggest ever gathering of cluster headache sufferers in the world - and the Professor got us to 'Stand up for Cluster headache' and took a picture of the audience which he posted on Twitter!  Excellent speakers, wonderful venue, report to follow in Chit Chat soon.

 

Val. ;)

It was brilliant!  What a day - everything we could have hoped for and more.  It was great meeting more of our members!  Even to just stand there and look at so many of our cluster family gathered together in one place was very moving. The speakers were all excellent as always and the Professor was the icing on the cake.  He certainly knows how to coin a good catchphrase too :love:with "Stand up for Cluster Headache" I'm sure it's going to catch on!

I had a fantastic day despite illness. Really enjoyed meeting some of you guys like we were long-lost friends, and I learned a lot. Most of all, I left the day with a whole new feeling of HOPE. So thank you!

Arise and be all that you dreamed.

I thought it was our best meeting ever. It took two years to get off the ground but really was worth it.
