We are now dealing with an increase in requests from journalists who want to hear your story. As a Patient Support Group it is our duty to raise awareness of the issues faced by our members. These issues include the problems of an accurate and timely diagnosis, adequate treatment and on-going problems after diagnosis. Consequently we are looking for people to share their stories with the media to raise awareness of these problems. This which would involve using your name/maiden name and a head shot of yourself which would go into a national paper or be used in a women’s/men’s magazine.
If you are happy to support and help us and share your story please contact Mars who will chat through what is needed she can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or via her mobile on 07717718063. Thank you for your support.
Two such stories are about to be published in national magazines next month. I will let you know when and where these will be published once they are available on newsstands.
