REAL LIFE SLEEPING BEAUTY WHO MISSED CHRISTMAS

Meet the real life sleeping beauty whose rare sleep disorder saw her snooze through CHRISTMAS. In December 2013, student Gemma Garfirth. 21, slept through a week of festivities - missing family gatherings, present opening, and even Christmas dinner.  And now, having suffered from 30 sleep episodes over the past five years, Gemma fears she will miss this year’s party season.
