Got a Story to Tell?
Our members love to read about the experience of others with their disease. Some lovely people have already written their 'stories' or starred in our films, but for our 20th anniversary, we're aiming to include another 20 stories on our webpage. Do you have a story to tell about you and your family's experience of diagnosis, treatment and life with your MEN syndrome? We'd love to hear it! We have a template for you to use if you want to, but otherwise, do your own thing and don't forget to send a few photos.
