Thanks to those who joined us for our Holiday celebration in December. It was a very small group, but the pizza was good, the treats were better and the gifts were so much fun! Better yet, was the company who stayed to share the celebration. (You know who you are!)

Midwest Narcolepsy Support Group 
is scheduled for

Saturday, January 5, 2019
  10:30 am - 12:00 noon

At this Meeting we will have an open discussion on Narcolepsy and living with Narcolepsy, New Year's Resolutions, etc
It is open to ALL - patients and their "Support Team" members.
Join us, your input is invaluable.
