International Trigeminal Neuralgia Day of Awareness - St. John's, NL
Last year, the first ever International Day of Awareness for TN was launched and events were held all over the world, including one in Cavendish, NL, in honour of two locals who suffer from this condition. There will be a small commemorative event in St. John's, on Tuesday Oct 7, 2014, at 12 noon, at the picnic bench park area of Kent's Pond, just out back of the Confederation Building parking lot.
The event will be hosted by Jennifer McCreath, a well-known local political and social activist, and it will feature a keynote address by Kim Noftall, also of St. John's, who suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia.
Participants are encouraged to wear teal blue, as this is the official colour of facial pain. McCreath and Noftall will be available to speak with the media after the event. All are welcome to attend.
