LifeGoals vs. BrainLifeGoals video series

The #BrainLifeGoals campaign will raise awareness of the impact of neurological diseases by exploring the dreams and aspirations of those living with a brain disorder. Sharing #LifeGoals has become a popular trend in social media. #LifeGoals are the often frivolous wishes people have – for example to own a designer handbag, meet a particular pop star or drive a Maserati. In this campaign we will put a new spin on the #LifeGoals trend by instead sharing #BrainLifeGoals.

As part of the campaign, a group of young patient advocates produced a series of videos around this idea. The group are: Adam Kalinowski, Poland / Ireland, (Dystonia Europe),  Andrea Rodriguez, Spain, (European Migraine & Headache Alliance),  Casey Nicol, UK, (, Kamila Navrátilová, Slovakia, (Fialová Stužka) and Yulia Ostapenko, Ukraine.

Participants of interviews:


  • Celinda, Spain
  • Cat, UK
  • Evgenyi, Ukraine
  • Roberta, Ireland
  • Zuzana, Slovakia


  • Kamila, Slovakia, Epilepsy
  • Marzena, Poland, Dystonia
  • Tracey, Ireland, Dystonia
  • Yulia, Ukraine, Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • Zoe, UK, Multiple Sclerosis


Many thanks to the group who produced these great videos!
