Nienke Leone

“My name is Nienke Leone and I wrote the song Crying in the Cinema for my childhood friend who lost her father to the heart disease PLN. On April 5, the song will be released online, and together with the PLN Foundation, I am campaigning to make sure more people know about the existence of the disease, in the hope that eventually there will be more research into it.

PLN is a heart disease that we still know very little about. The disease originated in the Netherlands, is hereditary and there are about 10 to 15 thousand people in the Netherlands who carry the gene for it. The painful truth is that only 50% of carriers grow old with this. My friend is one of those carriers, which is why I am donating all royalties from the single to the PLN Foundation. On this website I will keep you up to date on the action and the amount raised. You can support the action by donating or streaming or sharing the song. 100% of donations go to research. Together, let’s put PLN on the map!”

Nienke Leone's proceeds: €1200.
