Help Us Tell Your Story

If you have a story that you want to share, AARP is listening.

If you have a story that you want to share, AARP is listening. Personal stories strengthen our work with the media, illuminate the top issues affecting our members and help us tell reporters what matters most to you. We read and learn from every story and may use yours - with your permission – as real life examples.

Are you struggling with high healthcare costs? Are you unable to find health insurance? Are you worried about the cost of your prescription medicines? Have you stopped taking a medication your doctor prescribed because it was too expensive? Are you managing multiple chronic conditions? Are you managing your own health and wellness while taking care of a loved one? Are you delaying retirement or stuck in a job you don’t love due to concern about healthcare costs? Are you worried about healthcare costs in retirement? You aren’t alone.

If any of these things sound familiar, we’d like to hear from you. Through education, outreach and advocacy, AARP is working hard to improve the healthcare system for everyone and your personal story can help. By giving voice to the concerns you have and the decisions you’re making, you can help raise awareness and draw attention to the worries facing so many Americans.

Please share your story using the form below. By entering your contact information, you give us the opportunity to be in touch with you before we make your story public in any way. Thank you for sharing. We look forward to hearing from you.
