Tuesdays with … January 19, 2015
Here’s your Tuesdays with…. update for those in need of a kidney transplant and their advocates. It is a short one this week. You could use the following information and email to family members, friends and post on your Facebook page and other social media outlets. You could also include additional information about your health, progress and other activities. If this is your first Tuesdays with… update, click here to learn how to use Tuesdays with… to expand on your Kidney Kampaign.
Did you happen to see the video made by a woman who has Cystic Fibrosis that went viral? Over 11 million people saw it. She was promoting awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. As she said, “I'm trying to raise awareness because one day Facebook friends, it's going to come down to you saving my life.” Here’s the link to the video. No need to check your volume setting, she doesn’t speak a single word in the video, but her message is very clear. http://on.today.com/1B0QVca (There’s a video link in the story)
Like the ice bucket challenge I’m going to make my own video about my need for a kidney transplant using a similar technique. I’ll send it to you when finished with a request for you to post it on your Facebook page, Twitter, blog, other social media platform and email to your contacts.
I am very grateful for the continued support I’m receiving from family members and friends and will continue to keep you up to date on my progress.
Can you suggest another way to let others know about your need? Please share it with us by Clicking Here and we will include in in a future Tuesdays With... update.
If you know someone else in need of a kidney transplant or would like to pass this on to your doctor or a dialysis/transplant social worker please provide him or her with this link:
Until next week, we wish you the best in your journey.
