Shane Burcaw is the author of several award-winning books about disability. He is the President of a nonprofit organization called Laughing At My Nightmare, and a renowned public speaker who has performed across the country at places such as Harvard University, The University of Florida, The University of Connecticut, Princeton University, and many more.
Hannah Aylward graduated from Carleton College, where she studied Sociology and Anthropology. She films and edits the “Squirmy and Grubs” vlog, which has over 670,000 subscribers on NLcameras. Hannah has spoken at prestigious universities and Fortune 500 companies alike about the realities of ableism. On her popular Instagram account, she advocates for acceptance of all people and works to improve the way society thinks about disability.
Shane and Hannah have been together for over four years. They got married in September of 2020 in the midst of a global pandemic in their backyard, with their officiant conducting the ceremony via Zoom. Their interabled relationship often confuses people, because much of society still cannot fathom people with disabilities being involved in loving, intimate relationships. Anyone who watches these episodes will quickly see their relationship is just as “normal” as any other. Sure, Hannah helps Shane use the bathroom and brush his teeth, but those activities do not detract from the emotional, intellectual, and physical connection they experience together.

    Congratulations on your new robotic! It will for sure change your life! Has Shane always had issues with his arms and hands that has developed to the point that he can only use them minimally. He seems so fragile but I am sure he's not as fragile as he appears. Will his health be a progressive thing like with m.s.? Also, Shane, you and Hannah have such a beautiful relationship! You both are so unique and are perfect for each other that I only see great things for you two in the future! Many blessings!!!!!!!

    Do you think you'll get genetic testing for the gene or will you wing it by the grace of God ?🤣 My older brother has type 1/2 SMA, I don't but I carry the gene, I'm currently 7 months pregnant with our first. So many doctors tried to force me into genetic testing for my Husband though but knowing the answer doesn't mean anything to me/change anything so I never bothered.

    The joystick arm could be on a swing arm. That would leave you free to lift him with the JACO arm on the left side. Also they make baby seat ans stroller attachments for wheelchairs! So Shane will not only feed your baby and yourselves with his JACO arm, but he will be able to also go for a stroll around the block. I'm working on having a family as a disabled woman, and I figured I'd share my searches.
