New Narcolepsy Story: Meet Victoria
Victoria is a homeschooling mother of two, educational diagnostician, and major horse enthusiast. She was diagnosed with narcolepsy with cataplexy at 26 years old and now hopes to raise awareness of this condition. As a speaker with Project Sleep’s Rising Voices of Narcolepsy program, Victoria will share her experiences finding her diagnosis and living with narcolepsy. Through her story, she hopes to emphasize that feeling understood and accepted is important, even when you don’t understand and accept yourself.
What is the Story Sharing Series?
The Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing Series invites viewers to gather online to watch a Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speaker or writer present their story live via Project Sleep’s Facebook page. Project Sleep is proud to offer this series every other week. At a time in which many people need connection more than ever, this will increase opportunities for people around the world to engage with and support one another.
About Rising Voices of Narcolepsy:
To improve public understanding of narcolepsy, Project Sleep’s Rising Voices of Narcolepsy program trains people with narcolepsy to share their stories through public speaking and writing with local communities, healthcare providers, news outlets, blogs and beyond. Combining the power of real-life stories with expert communication strategies, our Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speakers and writers are effectively raising awareness and reducing stigma for all those facing narcolepsy.
