Tara Stuart is a mother, teacher, daughter of a person with narcolepsy and currently training for the Boston Marathon. In this episode, Tara shares her memories of growing up with her father having narcolepsy and how it affected their family.

Tara’s dad wasn’t properly diagnosis well into his late 20s early 30s. He worked for his family’s construction company where he was able to accommodate his need to take naps. Tara’s dad is turning 90 this year and she decided to join Wake Up Narcolepsy’s 2019 Team for the Boston Marathon in honor of him. This opportunity has opened up her family to reflect and dialogue about their childhood. Her dad has even taken to writing down his memories. It is a sweet treat to hear their story through Tara.
