Ireland will Light Up Teal on October 7th 2017!

Our "Light Up Teal " Campaign is well under way. To date, we have 26 fabulous buildings that will Light Up Teal for International Trigeminal Neuralgia Day on October 7th 2017

This year is the 5th year of the worldwide "Light Up Teal" campaign. Our mission is to bring much needed awareness to the monstrous condition; Trigeminal Neuralgia. Last year, over 100 buildings, monuments and bridges shone their lights proudly, and over 30 were here in Ireland. 

Trigeminal Neuralgia Ireland's main goal is to spread the word and to make sure every single sufferer aware of our support group. Nobody should suffer in silence. We also need to make sure that the medical community is fully aware of this condition, and that Trigeminal Neuralgia is a recognised chronic pain condition. As any suffer knows, Trigeminal Neuralgia is one of the most painful conditions known to humankind. We are also determined to prompt the World Health Organisation to add Trigeminal Neuralgia to their "Health Topic's List" which will further raise awareness and provide resources and funding to find a cure. 
The full International List can be found on the TNNME website here;
