For some people, the loss of sleep really is something to lose sleep over. That's why, according to sleep disorder experts, finding the right support systems can be critical. Officials at Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk are announcing the start of a new support group affiliated with a national organization focused on promoting education and awareness for individuals and families suffering from sleep apnea and sleep-related issues. Caroline Spoth, BA, RRT, said the group, A.W.A.K.E. of Western New York, will meet quarterly starting on Tuesday, Nov. 20. Anyone interested is invited to the first meeting slated from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Brooks Memorial Hospital first floor Medical Library. Free refreshments will be available. To register, call 363-3994.
