End of Year Giving Campaign

Your generous donations help us ensure that the next 10+ years continue to break barriers in narcolepsy research, decrease time-lapse from onset symptoms to proper diagnosis and provide supportive services for people with narcolepsy and their families.

People with Narcolepsy have been living in the shadows. It’s time to step into the light.

Kevin Cosgrove, Co-founder of WUN

Online Support Groups

We are committed to supporting patients and families affected by narcolepsy. Our peer support programs are group video meetings led by trained facilitators and are accessible from anywhere in the world. They are a free resource providing targeted support from the early days of diagnosis to living with narcolepsy as an adult.

Camp for Children With Narcolepsy

Camp for our families provide a unique opportunity where children with narcolepsy can meet other kids experiencing the same symptoms and challenges. Building relationships that extend beyond their diagnosis, children with narcolepsy find not only new friends, but a new sense of self identity in which they are no longer different. They gain self-confidence and empowerment, while building hope for their futures. Parents, care-givers and siblings can also attend for free, enjoying a full camp experience and additional support through community and workshops.

It’s changed my life. Now I’ve met my best friend with narcolepsy.

Grace, 17

Camp is a place to connect with people who understand. It’s relief.

Swinging for Sleep

Swinging for Sleep is a campaign created by Nicole Jeray to raise awareness and money for narcolepsy while she competed in LPGA tournaments.

It truly gave my career more meaning as I travelled the world doing what I loved, playing golf and talking about narcolepsy.
