17th May is World Neurofibromatosis Awareness Day
Yesterday, on Tuesday 17th May 2022, we had over 200 buildings and landmarks across the UK & the Republic of Ireland, lighting up in blue, the colour of NF, to Shine A Light on Neurofibromatosis and celebrate 40 years of Nerve Tumours UK.
The global Shine A Light campaign is now in its 8th year and this was the brightest one yet, in our joint efforts to raise awareness. Around the world, hundreds of buildings lit up. Countries taking part included:
- UK & Republic of Ireland - 204
- US - 85
- Canada - 21
- Australia - 113
- Italy - 23
- Portugal - 1
- Singapore - 6

A big thank you to every building and landmark and every person who helped us Shine A Light!
