No one expects you to do a million things, but DO try to write at least one letter to
your Congressperson. Then if you're up to it, choose one of the other suggestions listed
above (or come up with something new!) that suits you best and that you are best able
to accomplish. Let us know what you are doing to make others
more aware of FM and CFS/ME!
Thank you for helping to increase awareness about FM and CFS/ME!
Join the Fighting Fatigue "Fighting Back" Challenge!
In honor of their 5th year anniversary, the Fighting Fatigue website has initiated
the "Fighting Fatigue Fighting Back Against Chronic Illness Challenge"!
How the Fighting Back Challenge Works:
- Just upload a video to You Tube and
send them your link or you can
email them your story in writing
- If you would like to remain anonymous and are submitting your story in writing,
please be assured that they will NOT include any names. You can give them a nickname
or initials that you want me to use.
- If you currently have a blog or website on your illness or chronic illness in
general, please feel free to include your link in your story or video. Hopefully by
doing this, we can spread the word even further and start a "fighting back"
- Also please mention in your video or story that you are participating in the
Fighting Back Challenge. This way we can all further promote our message of surviving
and thriving with chronic illness.
They are hoping to get some sponsors who will want to get involved for some great
giveaways and contests throughout the year and they are currently working on bracelets
that can be purchased.
Let's all make this a great year of sharing our inspirational stories and raising
awareness for chronic illness! You are special and you deserve to tell your story
and have your voice heard! Let's make this a great awareness year!
