It can be as easy as a click or two
We know there is still more that is needed to be done. We rely completely on donations and volunteers to help us continue with our work. There are lots of ways you can help us – you could make a one-off donation, give us some of your time by volunteering or maybe your company might match a donation. Supporting Pseudomyxoma Survivor can be as easy as a click when you shop online.
We are always looking for volunteers to be buddies, help with the moderation of our support group and more. If you are interested in finding out more about how you can help, please email us – [email protected].
You can involve your company through sponsoring an event or perhaps your employer offers a matched giving scheme.
Many companies throughout the UK offer employees the chance to boost their fundraising efforts by ‘matching’ the money they raise. If you’re fundraising for us, check with your employer if they offer matched giving and double your donation.
Legacies left to Pseudomyxoma Survivor are so important to us. They enable us to provide support to thos affected by pseudmyxoma peritonei (PMP), appendix cancer and other rare peritoneal malignancies. They also allow us to expand our work in each of these areas.
It’s quick and easy to support Pseudomyxoma Survivor by making donations online through safe, secure websites such as JustGiving and PayPal. If you are outside the UK, that’s ok too.
Should you wish you money to be donated specifically for research, please let us know and we can ring-fence your donation and include it in our grants to specific research charities. We reserve the right to keep 10% for administration and to ensure the future running of Pseudomyxoma Survivor.
One of our goals is to help patients be diagnosed earlier and be informed of available treatment and support. You can help us achieve this by doing some awareness raising yourself in your local area or online. There are lots of things we can do to help raise awareness of PMP, appendix cancer and other peritoneal surface malignancies.
Give a talk
Give a talk about your experiences with PMP. This could be at work, at a school, to local clubs and organisations such as the women’s institute, or even to friends and family to help them understand the condition better.
Put up posters
Order our posters to display in your local area. This is a vital way that we can get our information to the people that need it. With permission, you could display these posters in your library, GP’s surgery, local supermarket or newsagent — anywhere that might get people’s attention.
Raise awareness online
Why not use your online social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Google+ to help raise awareness of PMP? You could tweet facts about it, or add an orchid to your profile picture using a service like Twibbon.
Contact your local media
Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. The local press are always looking for interesting articles to print. Share your PMP story and spread some facts about the disease. Tell us about it and we can include a link to the story on our website.
