A Night For Life will raise vital funds for The National Brain Appeal. The National Brain Appeal raises vital funds for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery - the UK’s largest dedicated neurological hospital and neuroscience centre.
1 in 6 people in the UK are affected by a neurological condition. That's over 12.5 million people. That's more than the number of people living with cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes combined.
Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Stroke is the fourth single largest cause of death in the UK and second in the world. Dementia is now the leading cause of death in England and Wales.
A Night For Life is your chance to be part of an unforgettable evening and make a real difference.
Money raised on the night will enable the hospital to double the size of its current brain tumour unit.
Clíodhna McCorley is 1 in 6 people in the UK living with a neurological condition.
In May 2015, aged 24, she was diagnosed with a brain tumour and needed major brain surgery at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN). Following this traumatic time, Clíodhna has made a brilliant recovery. She is passionate about raising funds to ensure that others, like her, have a better chance of survival.
“"I owe my life to this hospital. Raising funds is vital to ensure they can continue their pioneering work and save lives."- Clíodhna McCorley
