Take action, comment on blog articles, earn points, gain badges all because You’re the Cure.

Dear Advocates,

I want to welcome you to our new You’re the Cure Community Site and I hope you enjoy it.  This will be your one stop shop for all things Advocacy.  As mentioned above you can:

-take action on recent alerts,

-read “The Pulse” which will serve as a state blog,

-earn points by responding to alerts, commenting on stories, re-tweeting alerts, and contacting your elected officials in a number of ways,

-gain badges for various accomplishments like attending a Lobby Day, being a caregiver or survivor, being a YTC Promoter, being a medical professional, and many other ways. 

Click on your name at the top of the page to view your profile and learn more about our ranks and badges. 

Throughout the year you will be hearing from me and the Government Relations Director in your state.  I hope that we will also be hearing from you. You can get started on earning points by commenting on this and other articles below.


You’re the Cure,

  • This is a great way to stay connected find ways to participate, even if it is only through electronic media (emails and social media). I just sent every letter possible through the Action Center and shared several on social media sites as well.
