Basically in order to celebrate me starting Radiotherapy on Monday I am going to try and raise as much awareness of Ledderhose and Dupuytren's on Saturday as I can. Now what I need is some great ways to do this. The main this I am going to do at the moment is to try to use twitter. For example on twitter you can ask people to retweet your message so if I make something like.
"Want to raise awareness for Ledderhose ledderhose.blogspot.co.uk and @Dupuytren's please RT, I am starting radiotherapy on 21/5." This message is just about small enough to fit as a tweet but also to get in the @XXXXX at the start.
I can then send this to people like BBC Health who has over 300,000 followers and ask them to retweet it meaning that their followers see it and might decide to follow the link. I have no clue if this is going to work but thought it will be quite easy to try to do. Just need to tweet several places like BBC Health (@BBCHealth), The Broad Appeal (@BroadAppeal), Cancer research UK, British Dupuytren's Society, Discovery Health (@Disc_Health), World Health Organisation (@WHO), Rare Disease Day (@rarediseaseday), Dupuytren Foundation (@Dupuytren) and several others such as @doc_RT
