Melissa Nurmi, RN
In May, 2001 I was a senior at UMass, Amherst, about to graduate with my BS in Biology. I was applying to biotech companies and labs in Boston, looking forward to graduation and making plans for the summer.
One fine, sunny, spring day, I got a headache. I have a long history of migraines, so this headache wasn’t particularly bad, as headaches go. I took something for it and then went out for pizza and a smoothie with one of my roommates.
