I want to let you know that because of you, I was able to raise over $1,100 to raise awareness for the American Sleep Apnea Association. Thanks and God Bless You!

Perhaps next year we won't have such a storm as Sandy and I'll be able to keep my pledge and run the race.

CONGRATS on your efforts and…
CONGRATS on your efforts and success with raising awareness about OSA. It's is a chronic medical condition that has been gaining an enormous amount of attention in the media and medical world. Most are unaware that they have it because these events occur during sleep.It is a condition in which someone has a blockage in the airway (usually at the back of the throat) that results in one or more pauses or shallow breaths during sleep. Wen breathing resumes, it usally sounds like snoring. An estimated 30% - 50% of people snore. Contrary to popular belief, snoring is NOT normal.

Many people, such as yourself, have to wear a CPAP machine. Unfortunately, most are non-compliant and refuse to wear the mask. Which means...they aren't treating their condition. Chase Dental Sleepcare offers a custom-made, easy-to-wear, comfortable Oral Appliance that's a perfect alternative for these patients.

Everyone deserves a great night's sleep!

Hello! I admit, I have been…
Hello! I admit, I have been away for a few months working on a charity event that I have not yet gotten on Crowdrise. It was an international event called Shimmy Mob, where belly dancers from all over the world performed the same choreography, wearing the same simple outfits, on the same day (May 12th, World Belly Dance Day). The proceeds went to local shelters that help the domestically abused. I bhope next year to have this event showcased here on Crowdrise. Thus, I have been absent and have not had the chance to say 'hello' to new people joining Crowdrise...So... A Belated Welcome to Crowdrise!! Here is a vote (100 points), to help you get rolling!! Great to see you have already chosen a project!! You are off to an awesome start!!

CROWDRISING SINCE: Apr 27, 2012
Stuff About Me:

I'm in for the run of my life, the NYC Marathon and using this as an opportunity to increase awareness of OSA, Obstructive Sleep Apnea with my Crowdrise fundraiser.

If you've never heard of OSA, take a look at my fundraiser page and you will get a brief synopsis. I call it the 'Silent Killer' because so many people ignore the symptoms. I learned a valuable lesson watching my father deny he had the problem for years. He finally got tested and it made a world of difference for the last 12 years he was alive.

It gave me a self awareness that led me to demand my doctor approve getting a sleep study authorized for me. One of the myths about OSA is that it usually occurs in obese people. While it certainly is a contributing factor, it is not the only one. I did snore badly and thanks to my wife, I was made quite aware of it. So after trying every kind of over the counter snoring device and gimmick, I got myself tested. Much to her surprise, my doctor had to report that I had severe OSA.

I say CPAP Saved My Life because I know how much damage untreated OSA can do and CPAP is the number one best solution for addressing the problem.
