Chris W, 67
I live in Cleveland, OH, have worked for a health insurance company for over 26 years and am hoping to retire in the next few years. I enjoy spending time with all my family whenever I can.
I am now 67 and retired. I am still enjoying family and now am doing much more gardening. I still love my Inspire implant after 6 1/2 years and use it faithfully every night. I am sleeping well and waking up well-rested and full of energy.

Dan M, 56
Hello, I'm from the Cleveland, Ohio area and I retired from the United States Navy as a Chief in 2010. I’ve had the Inspire device since 2012. The sleep I get now is absolutely great! Before Inspire, my AHI was over 25 per hour. After receiving the implant, my last sleep study showed my AHI was about 1 episode per hour. Inspire has changed my life and I would do this all again without hesitation. I still work for the Navy and live in Pleasant Prairie, WI with my wife Barbara. We have been married over 25 years and have two children and two grandchildren.
Gerry H, 53
I am a divorced father with 2 young children. My stepdaughter has also blessed me with 3 grand kids. I live in a small town outside of Columbus, OH but I drive all over the United States as an over-the-road truck driver. I am usually gone during the week and home on the weekends. I like to travel, although most of my traveling involves a trailer load of product making it to a destination on time. My family and friends are very important to me and I have found that family goes beyond "bloodlines" sometimes. Thanks to Inspire, I am able to ride my Harley long distances again.
Al P, 68
I am a graduate of Methodist University. I live in Florence, South Carolina with my wife. We have been married for 42 years and have two children and one grandchild.
I founded the Chesterfield Little League in Virginia, one of the most successful Little League programs in the US.
