I thought I'd try to spread the BEAT message to my Facebook friends and posted up a pic and the BEAT words. One of my friends who's very IT savvy suggested I click on the 'Share' button at the bottom of the post so that just that particular message is visible to everyone. It doesn't compromise your other FB posts.
I clicked the 'share' button on my BEAT post and asked my FB friends to do the same. You then receive messages each time your friends have shared your message with all their friends. Within the space of 24 hours my little message has been passed to thousands of people all round the world. What an amazing idea.
This is the message I posted into Facebook:
BEAT helps us recognise the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer:
B - Bloating
E - Eating becomes difficult - Loss of appetite
A - Abdominal Pain
T - Talk to your Doctor!
Please tell your friends and pass on the message. Go to Ovacome.org.uk
