20,865 Signatures Goal: 30,000

Created and Sponsor by TNnME (Trigeminal Neuralgia and Me) and the International TN Awareness Fighters around the world.

We're asking the World Health Organization (WHO): To take action regards to Trigeminal Neuralgia, ALL Neuralgias, and Facial Pain Disorders by adding Trigeminal Neuralgia to their "Health Topics" list.

This year awareness campaign is dedicated Research 4 a CURE: Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain Disorders. By adding Trigeminal Neuralgia to your health topic list, this will also open doors for all neuralgia and facial pain disorders! It will create awareness, access to resources and create opportunities for funding & research.

TN is...characterized by episodes of intense pain in the face originating from the Trigeminal Nerve. The pain felt is the most excruciating known to man. This condition is so rare that only 1 in 20,000 people have it as some might say, but that number could be higher due to misdiagnosis. Women are more likely than men to be affected. Usually those older than 50 are diagnosed, but you can have it as young as 3 yrs. old!

People signing this petition are supporting Oct. 7th as the official International Awareness Day for Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain Disorders and asking (WHO) to add Trigeminal Neuralgia to their “Health Topic List”

We must inform people of what Trigeminal Neuralgia is, it's characteristic, symptoms & treatments. Joining our voices together, we can be heard around the world!

    I am 36 and have been living with this beast since about August last year. You can't even begin to understand how much my life and those around me have been impacted. In this day and age, where medicine has progressed significantly, there has to be more that can be done for myself and other sufferers.

    Please recognise TN as a devastating disease... I recently had an MVD , and a subsequent brainstem stroke from the surgery, but I'd go through it again to stop the TN pain!!! We need a CURE!!!

    It was so lovely to meet young lady Lagi L at the hospital yesterday. draped in her hosp gown i find her 'staggering' up & down the ward pinning up a poster & lil business cards. I asked what it was & she explained to me what trigeminal was while trying to breathe. This poor young lady is in so much pain but still trying to spread as much awareness she can from her hospital bedside. THEY NEED A CURE ASAP!

    My 29 year old daughter has been a TN warrior for the past 5 years. Please find a cure for this unimaginable condition. The world needs to know more about and put a cure at the front of the list.

    Thank you.
