"People with narcolepsy have been living in the shadows. It’s time to step into the light.” -- Kevin Cosgrove, co-founder
Wake Up Narcolepsy, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting narcolepsy awareness and research to find a cure. WUN carries out its mission by:
- Providing funding to accelerate a cure for narcolepsy
- Increasing awareness of narcolepsy
- Decreasing time-lapse from symptom onset to proper diagnosis
- Providing supportive resources for people with narcolepsy and their families
Upon recognizing the great need to raise awareness and research funds for narcolepsy, Kevin Cosgrove, of Boston, teamed up with Monica and David Gow, of Worcester, MA, to establish Wake Up Narcolepsy, Inc., in 2008.
Wake Up Narcolepsy has quickly become a national leader for narcolepsy research and awareness. We are dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for narcolepsy while increasing public awareness. Every year, Wake Up Narcolepsy hosts various awareness-driven events and makes substantial contributions to cutting-edge narcolepsy research across the country.
