RECENT CLIENT WHO USED THE MEDIA TO RAISE AWARENESS

Laura Harris is an oncology nurse who looks after cancer patients every day at work – but in a tragic twist of fate she was diagnosed with her own terminal bowel cancer in January last year.

She was given three months to live but she is continuing to fight the disease so she have extra time making special memories with her two children and step-son.

But despite working for the NHS for 12 years, Laura was told the drug that could help her live longer was not available as it was too expensive to fund.

Her sister-in-law created a Go Fund Me page to try and raise £40k and for several weeks donations slowly trickled in.

Laura’s story came to the attention of news editor Tom Bevan, via our extensive local contacts.

He contacted her on Facebook and she said she would be delighted to speak to us to help generate national publicity for her cause.

Trained reporter Tom worked with Laura to write her story in a sensitive way. He made sure it reached all the best media contacts.

WHERE CAN WE GET YOUR STORY PRINTED

SellUsYourStory.com is part of SWNS, the UK’s largest independent press agency. We supply up to 20 per cent of all UK print news. In just a few hours after her story had appeared online on the Sun, Mirror, Daily Mail, Metro and Express.

Almost instantly her target of £40k was reached – with more than £30k donated in less than 24 hours.

Furthermore, the next day her story appeared in print in the Times, Mirror, Mail, Sun and Metro.

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OUR SERVICE

Afterwards we spoke to Laura again who said she was humbled by the support and generosity of the public.

But she also acknowledged that nothing would have been possible without SWNS getting her story out to such a wide audience.

She told us: “The power of the press is unbelievable. As soon as the story was out there it just started going crazy. These people don’t know me and will never know me so I am blown away they have been so supportive.

“Thank you so much SWNS. I am so grateful to you for publicising my story and getting us to our target. Ultimately we couldn’t have done it without you.”
