Submitting your personal story for Surviving Graves Disease

I have been working on a book on and off for many years and it's very dear to my heart.  The book is important for people with Graves and their families help understand their journey.  This year I hope to have it ready to be published!   My Editor has suggested that short stories from other people with Graves would be helpful to the readers.  And, I totally agree!  I am but once voice and together we are stronger!  Your story can make a huge difference in another person's life and give a voice to Graves Disease!  

I am looking for people to share a small part of their journey that will make the reader smile, touch their heart and help to understand specific topics; such as:

  • ATDs
  • RAI
  • Surgery
  • Remission
  • Long Term Recovery
  • Thyroid Eye Disease
  • Orbital Decompression Surgery
  • Changes in lifestyle, such as: meditation, nutrition and exercise

Your story should be a small part of your journey submitted in a Word document.  A few paragraphs would be fine but please try to keep it under 600 words. You are welcome to be anonymous, use a pen name or your first name and initial of last name. Please email your story to will email you a simple contract giving me the right to publish your story and agree to allow for any editing. Upon receipt of the contract, compensation will be provided in the form of PayPal in the amount of $20.00. Please only one submission per person.  

My goal is to email all of the notifications of acceptance by October 1, 2018.  Every story will be considered carefully and, depending on the number of submissions, it could a take a bit longer before the acceptance letters are emailed.  The stories accepted will touch the heart, help understand Graves and if it makes me laugh it would be a bonus!  

Thank you in advance for considering to share a small part of your journey in a book that I truly hope will help others and bring awareness to Graves' Disease!
