Review for Clusterbusters Inc, Richmond , VA, USA
Clusterbusters is an unselfish, efficient, compact advocacy organization that goes the extra miles. This long standing, organization boldly makes an impact for everyone battling cluster headaches. Cluster headache is the most painful of headache conditions. It is a debilitating condition affecting a small portion of the population disrupting lives, creating immense disability and disproportionately leads to suicide. Treatment options are limited and often difficult to obtain secondary to lack of understanding and reimbursement issues. Clusterbusters uses its resources responsibly to support individuals with this poorly understood condition. Support is emotional, informational and via advocacy. Resources are also directed at research support seeking effective treatment options. The organization thrives with a network of dedicated volunteers making a real difference in peoples lives. Working with limited funding, Clusterbusters champions coverage for treatment and research while maintaining an informational clearinghouse and support group online. Working with government agency's and academic researchers Clusterbusters is at the forefront of understanding and researching treatment options for people managing cluster headaches. The limited resources they have are well used and responsibly disbursed with minimal overhead in the mission of serving the population afflicted by cluster headaches.
