In celebration of writing our new book about the challenges of sleep apnea treatments, we're taking the plunge and running our first contest.

Your shared experience may be included in one of the book's chapters, where the reader can gain more knowledge about sleep apnea.

Contest Description

Criteria of Judgment

50% from Comprehensiveness of Shared Experience

We want others to learn something useful from your story and to inspire them to act fast towards treatment. If you have some detailed step-by-step instructions, it would certainly help a lot.

25% if Photos are Included

Sometimes, all it takes for a person to take action or get inspired is an interesting photo. Share your photo of your CPAP machine or mask, the sleep lab room where you were diagnosed, your dental device, etc. to get extra points.

25% from Impact on Readers

People can comment their opinions related to your experience. The more comments from them, the better. When you submit the story, we'll announce every subscriber from our newsletter or Facebook page to take a look.
