Would you like to tell your story in the media? - Why not consider being a Case Study?*

By raising awareness of what we do in the national and local press we can reach more people. We rely on personal stories to help us engage readers around our cause and bring stories of living with ichthyosis to life.

Your story can encourage those who see it to get support, or may inspire them to donate or fundraise for us. Some people who’ve shared their story find it a cathartic experience. It makes them feel good to give something back.

We receive various requests for people willing to tell their story through the media.  Freelance journalists, some of who we have worked with in the past, and have previously published stories about ISG members regularly contact us. Participants are often paid and some will also receive a set of professional photos.  The aim is to get stories into the national newspapers but otherwise they will appear in women’s magazines. If you are interested in talking to journalists and telling your story please let us know so we can pass your details on when opportunities arise.
