From May 15-18 at the LPGA Sybase Classic in Clifton, New Jersey, golfing guru Diana DAlessio will be on hand to help increase the awareness of menstrual migraines, a condition affecting millions of women.
DAlessio, whos had the massively debilitating headaches for 10 years, says the pain has taken its toll on her tee.
She says, When its severe, I have to get my caddy to drive me around. You cant concentrate, and you have a horrible feeling in your head.
But the period pain has never caused her to skip a shot.
She says, Ive had to lie down, but Im from the school of thought that unless youre on your death bed, you dont withdrawal from a tournament. I just push through.
And aside from helping flocks of female fans, DAlessio plans to provide some period peace for her female caddy, who also suffers from menstrual migraines.
