narcolepsy not alone tshirts thank youOn Feb. 10, 338 official NARCOLEPSY: NOT ALONE t-shirts will be delivered – raising awareness about narcolepsy in communities across the country. Please send photos of you wearing your shirts ( for the gallery!

In addition, over $4,000 was raised for Project Sleep, my new non-profit to promote sleep health and sleep disorders. Wow!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I never imagined such an incredible response. Your generosity will help Project Sleep’s launch into the world a huge success.  I’m SO excited. Also, thank you to the nice people at Booster for making this so easy to facilitate. 

I hope to make the shirts available longterm via another system. Thank you for your patience as I figure out next steps.

    Dear Julie,

    Congrats & thank you for all you’ve accomplished to raise awareness about narcolepsy.

    Wanted you to know, I feel terrible that I haven’t participated much over the last couple months. My boyfriend of 8 yrs, became ill with a virus that attacked his heart and is in need of a heart transplant. I’ve been spending much of my time educating myself about whats to come, how to fund-raise for expenses not covered, etc.

    I miss being in the know, but he needs me at this difficult time. He has been practically the only one who understands me and Narcolepsy, so its my time to ‘pay it forward’.

    I’ll check in now and then.

    Again, my hats off to Narcolepsy Awareness & you!

    Hi Julie,
    Congratulations on the t-shirts being such a success!
    I’m wondering (and hoping, with my fingers, toes and eyes all crossed), if your hope to make the shirts available long term via another system, includes a plan to make them available outside the US? Please say it does…

    I would like to purchase a t-shirt in honor of my 13 year old son who has narcolepsy/cataplexy.

    My husband and I love our Narcolepsy: Not Alone shirts! The fit is great, and we can proudly wear them with our Wake Up Narcolepsy wristbands to help educate our friends, coworkers, and anyone else that we run into!

    Keep up the great work!
