Can we raise awareness?

 This is from our mother site fmauk.org-Join our campaign - write to your MP and ask to become Fibromyalgia Ambassador!

We have written to all MPs and all Members of the House of Lords to ask them to become Fibromyalgia Ambassadors. We have already received a few positive responses - now we need your help to get more MPs on board.

Can we therefore raise awareness?

Do you have a template for a letter that you could post to help us get our local MPs involved? 🐸

Watch this space for a sort of template but you would need to add personal experiences etc. Also carers could write as it is important everyone gets involved!

Dear (name your MP which you find from theyworkforyou.com)

I am writing to you because I live with a head to toe pain syndrome  called Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Action UK has made you aware by a communication concerning that estimated 2-5% of UK population that suffer with Fibromyalgia.

(insert here how Fibro effects you - be honest like describing your pain, isolation low moods etc)

Without the immense support of the forums that are charity funded e.g.Healthunlocked/Fibromyalgia my life would be very much less bearable.

There is also a wealth of information on main national charity web site fmauk.org.

Therefore I am formally requesting as a constituent that as my Member of Parliament you adopt Fibromyalgia and become an ambassador inside and outside the House of Commons. Please champion the needs of people like me who live with a much understood and underfunded condition.

Thank you for reading this.

Yours Sincerely
