Oh! Oh! O2 Breathe!
Updated: Feb 10
It's been awhile...but we've been busy...
We are still filming Sydney's story but the reaction to the Airway documentary has been amazing. Many people have connected with us at airwaydocumentary.com and on social media and have been helped. This strong response motivated Dr. Avis and Sydney to take this project to the next level (above and beyond the film!) and create a not-for-profit organization called O2 Breathe Inc.
O2 Breathe has an awesome mission. The Airway documentary fits perfectly within that mission and remains the first and main initiative for O2 Breathe. Sydney's journey has led us to the goals that define O2 Breathe.
Airway challenges affect the very young and the old.
O2 Breathe has a bold and innovative vision for the future. The organization has assembled an influential and smart team and is planning additional projects like Airway that create awareness and will educate the public and healthcare professionals.
One of the issues we discovered in producing Airway is that there are patients who cannot afford the life changing procedures like jaw surgery and the many expenses beyond the actual cost of the procedures. O2 Breathe intends to create an endowment to provide financial assistance for some of those in need. O2 Breathe will also positively impact the Airway/ Sleep world by supporting professional educational initiatives.
O2 Breathe can change the world one breath at a time.
The O2 Breathe vision seeks to:
develop an endowment to help financially constrained persons with lthe cost of airway corrective procedures such as orthodontics, MMA surgery, ENT procedures, etc.;
support and advance educational projects concerning sleep disorders;
Collaborate with universities, professional organizations, and post doctoral education centers to create more well trained, collaborative minded doctors in the airway/sleep discipline.
This vision will position O2 Breathe to change the world one breath at a time.
O2 Breathe envisions medical / dental students gaining a greater understanding of airway related challenges before they enter practice.
What does all this mean to you? As friends, supporters, and followers of Sydney, you can now be part of a bigger journey and greater movement.
Each week more doctors and medical professionals are joining and supporting the O2 Breathe movement.
