Our History

In 2011, a kid named Shane Burcaw from Bethlehem, PA started a humorous blog to tell his life story of living with a disease that made his muscles waste away as he grew older. 

The blog grew to have over HALF A MILLION followers, a number that still grows this day. Shane realized how badly people needed humor in their lives, so he set out with his cousin Sarah (top picture) to create a company that could help people laugh more and help others living with the same disease. 

Since the founding of Laughing At My Nightmare, Shane has gone on to start a viral YouTube channel with his wife (bottom picture), Hannah (Aylward) Burcaw. The channel is called Squirmy and Grubs. Shane's disability plays a huge role in their relationship, but not in the way that most people expect. Watch them navigate their life together and laugh with them along the way!

Shane's cousin, Sarah, continues to operate LAMN's programs which continue to supply FREE adaptive equipment and assistive technology to the disability community. Since the founding of the organization, over $960,000 in assistance has been supplied!
