Upon recognizing the great need to raise awareness and research funds for narcolepsy, Kevin Cosgrove teamed up with Monica and David Gow to establish Wake Up Narcolepsy, Inc. in 2008. Wake Up Narcolepsy has quickly become a national leader for narcolepsy research and awareness, as it is dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for narcolepsy while increasing awareness amongst the public. Every year, Wake Up Narcolepsy hosts various awareness-driven events and makes substantial contributions to cutting-edge narcolepsy research across the country. They provide funding to accelerate a cure for narcolepsy, increase awareness of narcolepsy, decrease time-lapse from symptom onset to proper diagnosis and provide supportive resources for people with narcolepsy and their families.
