Narcolepsy PSA TV Schedule

NARCOLEPSY PSA SCHEDULE WEEK NOV 3 E NEWS HGTV NARCOLEPSY COMMERCIAL ADVERTISEMENTCan’t sleep tonight? Catch the FIRST TV airing of the narcolepsy public service announcement (PSA) at 12:41 a.m. on E! News Late Night.

Project Sleep is thrilled to share this week’s (11/3/14 – 11/9/14) TV air times for the narcolepsy PSA, including two prime-time airings on HGTV and E! this Friday and Saturday. We’ll keep you posted on specific dates/times for the coming weeks.

The narcolepsy PSA was developed in collaboration with Honda Motor Co., following an offensive narcolepsy joke in a Honda Fit advertisement this past summer. Honda removed the commercial, apologized and worked closely with the community to create this PSA to raise truthful national narcolepsy awareness. Read Press Release.

Please note: there are two versions of the PSA that will air on TV – and we do not know which time slots will air which. You may see Project Sleep’s PSA featuring Julie Flygare or a version approved by NN and WUN. Thank you to the narcolepsy community for this incredible team effort and to Honda and a Honda agency, RPA for making this possible.

  • Hi,
    I am a Chinese international student study in Toronto, Canada. I discovered my Narcolepsy 6 years ago when I was 16, a year earlier before I came over to Canada. I’ve been struggled with the symptoms all the time, both mentally and physically just as others. I tried my best to keep my passion and positive energy for the first 4 years, and recently I cannot not to think about it deeply, seriously again.
    I did the basic sleeping tests just to confirm my illness in the sleeping center, I got disability letter and help from my school and for my school. I tried so many ways to keep myself awake and many of them are definitely unhealthy. I tried 2 or 3 types of pills that doctor had given to me, but I am sure they are something none of us may want, so I stopped the medication. Healthy food, different living environments and lifestyles, exercises, busy or lazy.. I’ve tried them all, and it doesn’t work.
    I have one-year left of my Fine art Degree at OCAD University, my profs encouraging me to make some artwork about my Narcolepsy. yes. I am the one out of 2000 (my school), so I started my research on this illness. Then It reminds me my personal experience of how I started this. I realized there might be something could help with developing the treatment, which I haven’t seen it mentioned in the social media.
    There is no family medical record for me about any kind of sleeping disorder, so it shouldn’t be congenial. Anyways, I assume the orexin could kill by acquired problem, that seemed to be my reason.
    I am open to talk more about it, and I also want to know more about it. Not only for my art, but also for my self-cognition.

    Thank you for reading this,
    Serena Qu
