Out of Breath will put sleep apnea squarely where it belongs – in the public eye and on the minds of health care professionals, so that the medical field will finally focus on giving one billion sleep apnea sufferers the up-to-date treatments they so urgently need.
Why The Film
Sleep apnea is far too dangerous and widespread for the status quo to continue. Untreated, it leads to strokes, diabetes, heart failure and death. Out of Breath will help viewers identify with those who suffer from sleep apnea and begin to understand its impact on their own lives, and will motivate them to spread the word to friends and loved ones.
By supporting Out of Breath and joining our efforts, you can demonstrate your organization’s commitment to public health – and your desire to help raise awareness about this dangerous epidemic. Our film will be a powerful tool for engaging patients, health professionals and communities and inspiring better health outcomes.
“30% of the time I was not breathing, I was dying.”
