Supporting TN and Facial Pain Sufferers TNA London Marathon Runner.

A Call to Donate to TNA London Marathon Runner  Honor of Gerwyn Tumelty’s London Marathon Run.

Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN), also known as the “suicide disease,” is a debilitating condition characterized by severe facial pain that can be triggered by even the slightest touch or movement. It affects the trigeminal nerve. Which is responsible for transmitting sensory information from the face to the brain. TN can be excruciatingly painful. Often described as sharp, stabbing, or electric shock-like sensations that can last for seconds to minutes and can have a profound impact on a person’s quality of life.

Gerwyn Tumelty, a brave individual who suffered from TN from 2017 to 2019, has remarkably recovered after undergoing microvascular decompression surgery MVD  in 2019.

Despite his challenges,

Gerwyn is now running the London Marathon, one of the most gruelling races in the world. This incredible feat deserves recognition and support from the wider public.  Not only for Gerwyn’s personal achievement but also to raise awareness and funds for TN and facial pain sufferers.

The London Marathon is no ordinary race. It demands physical endurance, mental strength, and unwavering determination. For someone who has experienced the excruciating pain of TN.


The wind in the air, a simple touch, or a slight movement can trigger unbearable agony. Many TN and facial pain sufferers cannot step outside, let alone participate in a marathon. Gerwyn’s dedication to overcoming his pain and completing this challenging race is truly inspiring.

Fergus runs the Edinburgh Marathon!

Fundraising for Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK

Event: Edinburgh Marathon 2023, on May 28, 2023, Start fundraising for this event


Fergus Morgan Story

“Last October, my grandma Margaret Parkinson died, a few days after her 92nd birthday. I loved her very much.

She was a wonderful grandma and a very active woman for most of her life. She loved going for long walks, particularly with her friends and family, and particularly in her native Yorkshire.

For the last few years of her life, though, she suffered from trigeminal neuralgia. aAchronic illness that affects nerves in the face, causing sharp, debilitating pain.

The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association is a charity dedicated to supporting those with trigeminal neuralgia, raising awareness of the condition, and working towards solutions to it.

On May 28th, I am going to run the Edinburgh Marathon in memory of my grandma and to raise money for the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association.

This will be my first – and probably last! – marathon, and I’d be very grateful for any donations you can make to this worthwhile cause.
