The Grand Prize winner was poem submitted by Toni Davis from Hawaii:
My hubby uses his CPAP every night,without it his snoring’s a fright,he keeps his machine as clean as he can,he happens to be a germophobic man.He’d be so happy to win this sanitizing unit,It certainly would be a very big hit,He could keep his CPAP squeaky clean,get a good sleep and have a sweet dream.
Second place went to the alien grandmother from Oregon, Joann Carney:
I watch my grandchildren and I am always telling them I am a friendly alien that will protect them, so that way they are not afraid of my mask as it’s a full face mask. So now I am the alien Grammy… lol. I have 18 grandchildren and they share with their friend that it’s ok for people to wear this equipment and how it helps them, and the younger ones tell about their Grammy the alien lol.
Third place went to a compelling story by Stephanie Thomas from Washington:
I did my sleep study nearly 6 years ago. I have not been able to get a new CPAP mask since then. It has broken where the forehead piece connects to the rest of the mask. My hose has holes in it so I really don’t a full flow of air. It’s very discolored and the Velcro is very weak so I have to keep readjusting for a snug fit. But in order form my to keep healthy I have to wear it.
