Raising Narcolepsy Awareness
In this clip, Isiah Thomas talks about his daughter’s experience living with narcolepsy and cataplexy (a form of muscle weakness with emotions unique to narcolepsy). He also shares the importance of finding a proper diagnosis, the narcolepsy community and Project Sleep. Isiah’s love and respect for his daughter, Lauren shines bright and is very meaningful for all of those living with narcolepsy and all those loving someone with narcolepsy.
Spread the word!
Please share this clip to help us continue raising critical narcolepsy awareness! Narcolepsy effects 3 million people worldwide but the majority of those individuals have yet to receive a proper diagnosis.
Huge thank you to Isiah, the entire Thomas family and The Arena’s production team for championing this cause. You give us hope that a brighter future isn’t just a dream, but a reality we are achieving together!
