TNA – The Facial Pain Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit voluntary health organization, serving patients worldwide who suffer from neuropathic face pain, including trigeminal neuralgia (TN), their families, and the physicians, dentists and healthcare providers who treat them. TNA provides one-on-one patient support through its toll free telephone lines and its website and helps maintain over 50 local support groups throughout the USA, Canada, Europe and Australia.
TNA receives no Federal or State monies. Our primary sources of funding are contributions, membership fees and revenue from events and publications.
TNA was founded in 1990 by a group of TN patients and their spouses with the mission to improve the quality of life of TN patients through programs that empower patients to become knowledgeable about their condition and treatment options, that aid patients with chronic pain, that educate non-specialists on matters of diagnosis and treatment, and that encourage relevant medical research.
Today, TNA with the guidance of its Board of Directors and the support of its prestigious Medical Advisory Board, serves over 30,000 face pain patients and their families throughout the world. Through its subsidiary, The Facial Pain Research Foundation, TNA funds research projects to find a cure.
