A Columbus family is slated to be in a segment about migraine headaches expected to air Wednesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" program. The Neil Pushis family, including son and migraine sufferer Robert Pushis, 17, were filmed by a production crew that visited Columbus on Jan. 20. Show producers informed the family the network's migraine series would air Feb. 18-20, with Robert featured in Wednesday's broadcast at approximately 8:10 a.m. CT.
"They wanted to capture Robert's health journey," said Jeanne Pushis, Robert's mother. Part of that journey includes a major move the family made in 2017, one from Indiana to Mississippi for a climate that helped relieve the severity and frequency of Robert's debilitating migraine headaches he experienced since age 7.
"That is why they chose to feature our story, because one of the triggers that I think is a frequent one is weather, but everybody (with migraines) is so different," remarked Jeanne.
Robert was featured in a 2019 story by the U.S. Pain Foundation's INvisible Project magazine.
