Writing testimonials in the RE(ACT) TMAU group

RE(ACT) Crowdfunding site especially for rare disorders including TMAU

Link to RE(ACT) TMAU group

RE(ACT) is a Swiss charity, part of the BlackSwan Foundation. It is a recently started website intended to allow rare disorders to raise funding for projects. In particular it wants to attract researchers to put forward projects which the public may then donate to. So far only one project has been put forward on the whole website and that only went live about 1 month ago. (pilot study for CMN disorder)

About posting in the RE(ACT) TMAU group
Sufferers can interact with researchers on the RE(ACT) website by posting their 'experiences' of their condition. This is the same concept as writing a 'testimonial' on the Rare Connect TMAU group page.

RE(ACT states about the idea behind the 'experience' pages :

  I am a patient and I want to meet other patients, is the RE(ACT) Community a Patient Network?
• Our community is principally addressed to researchers and to patients and/patients organization which are actively implicated in research projects. If you want to meet patients and share your experience we suggest you to use the Eurordis' RareConnect platform. The RE(ACT) Community encourages patients to share their knowledge and experiences on treatments or to provide other scientific observations  to researchers in order to give them a better understanding of the disease and help them in finding new treatments.

Donating to the RE(ACT) TMAU group
People can donate to the RE(ACT) TMAU group via paypal, either by being signed in or donating anonymously. 10% of the donation goes towards RE(ACT) admin costs. Perhaps over time this fee will drop. Any money given to the TMAU group will be kept in the general TMAU fund until a project is approved which will then be given any accrued money.

Signing up to the RE(ACT) TMAU group
Many people have said they have not been able to sign up to the RE(ACT) TMAU group. It seems that quite often the clarification email is in the spam folder, although sometimes does not arrive at all. RE(ACT) is in beta mode, and hopefully the bugs will eventually be ironed out.

Another TMAU ebook on Amazon : A Girl's Guide to Managing TMAU

New TMAU book available on Amazon (published April 2014)
A Girl's Guide to Managing TMAU: My Personal Experiences, Diet and Solutions
by Katie Turner
Price : $2.98

It has been noticed that another ebook about Trimethylaminuria by as TMAU 'sufferer' is available on Amazon, published on Amazon on April 2014. This seems to be the 3rd personal TMAU ebook on Amazon. The other 2 books are listed below in the list.

About becoming on author on Amazon
Anyone can be an author on Amazon. As well as raising awareness of TMAU it could also be a possible way to generate some passive income, possibly from 35% to 70% of the purchase (minus any other costs). It seems that Amazon also take a cost per mb of size of the ebook, so using images apart from the cover are suggested, as images are so big in data size and text is not. Of course the book does not have to be about TMAU, as Karen James has shown by publishing her own fiction ebook on Amazon recently.

If you buy the ebook through the links in this post or via the Amazon links in the sidebar, MEBO will get a small % of the purchase at no extra cost to the buyer or to the author.
