Nicole Jeray

Patient Leader

Swinging for Sleep raises awareness and money for Narcolepsy while I play professional golf on the LPGA tour. I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy 18 years ago. It took me many years to figure out how to handle this life-altering disorder. Every day is still a struggle, but through various narcolepsy awarness efforts, treatments are improving and patients with narcolepsy are given hope. I am so grateful to be able to play golf for a profession and use this platform to increase narcolepsy awareness. All Swinging for Sleep donations are shared equally between two leading non-profit organizations, Wake Up Narcolepsy and the Narcolepsy Network.
