I was starting to lose moments I wanted to be a part of… No more excuses. Something was wrong.”
— Julie Flygare, Project Sleep President & CEO
On Sunday, May 10th, 2020 our Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing live series continued with a rare online event and book reading with Project Sleep’s President & CEO, Julie Flygare!
In this unique broadcast, Julie shared her journey—from wanting to push narcolepsy out of her life to finding self-acceptance, writing Wide Awake and Dreaming: A Memoir of Narcolepsy, and founding Project Sleep. Julie read a few of her favorite passages from her book, shared what’s helped her to live well with narcolepsy, and offered tips to get started in advocacy and awareness. Afterward, she answered questions from live viewers.
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.
