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, (Shift.ms), 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!
