Sharing your own personal story is the most effective way to advocate for healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke! As you have noticed, the You’re the Cure community site now features pictures and stories of real advocates – people like you whose lives have been impacted by cardiovascular disease. Please take a moment to share your story with us and we will feature you on our site and in an upcoming newsletter.
Here are the three things we need:
1. The story. We will have room for a short paragraph (600 words). There is no story too small and everyone is welcome to submit their experience. We want you to make your story grabs the attention of people who come to the site. Be passionate. Explain how your experience has impacted your life and why you are committed to helping us advocate. You also don’t need to be a heart or stroke disease survivor to share your story. Tell us about what you are doing in your community to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Please share your story here on the website.
2. A picture. Yes, we’ll need your best photo we can post so that everyone will see that there is a real person behind the story. Electronic photos only please. Photos should be horizontal or landscape for the best fit.
3. Your permission. This is the boring part. If you’d like to be featured on the website, we’ll need you to fill-out and return the attached permission form.
Send your photo and permission form to:
