In celebration of writing our new book about the challenges of sleep apnea treatments, we're taking the plunge and running our first contest.
Share your experience (negative or positive) about sleep apnea and get a chance to win $125 at the end of this summer.
Your shared experience may be included in one of the book's chapters, where the reader can gain more knowledge about sleep apnea.
Sleep Apnea Contest is designed to encourage patients with sleep apnea or their spouses (that could be you!) to inspire other apnea sufferers to find an easy path towards effective treatment.
Remember how difficult it was for you to get this far with a sleep disorder like sleep apnea. You can be a hero motivating someone to move forward.
