Improve outcomes for families by supporting the Foundation today Connor's Story
Posted on 12/15/2020 by Foundation for Airway Health
“I wish I was dead”
Words that no parent wishes to hear uttered by their young son.
Connor Deegan’s story is, unfortunately, not an anomaly; many parents may be exhausted and struggling with their children’s behavioral issues. Many parents may be attempting to treat these issues with mental health services, or perhaps with disciplinary action, without fully knowing or understanding the underlying cause of this behavior.
See Connor’s full story here:
Connor was suffering from sleep-disordered breathing; a condition that restricted his airways and caused sleep deprivation- a condition that affects nearly 5% of children* In the U.S. alone, the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research estimates that severe cases of sleep-disordered breathing may affect nearly 4 million people. As this condition often goes undiagnosed and untreated, the mission and goals of the Foundation for Airway Health are more critical than ever to ensure that those affected are diagnosed and receive access to care.
