Media: How To Get Press Coverage

Step 1. Think Before You Speak

Next » « Previous


  • Before going forward, think to yourself: "Is this a story I really want to go public with?"  If you receive the publicity you're looking for, your health condition will be very public. The story could grow and involve other aspects of your life as well.
  • Think to yourself
    • Will this affect my family? 
    • Will this affect my job? 
    • My health care?
  • If there is a legal case pending, you might not be at liberty to share your story.  Check with your lawyer first.
  • Is this a story worth telling?  Be realistic: is this a story that will not only help you, but will also help others in the same or similar situations?
  • What are you asking for?  What change do you hope to come out of this?  Is this change only for you or is it also for others in similar situations?
  • Ask yourself: "Am I ready to be honest with myself and others about my situation?"
