A Couple Responds To Trolls With Pure Love

Shane Burcaw is the subject of my story today, and he is an incredibly admirable human being. Having  impairments since the age of two, Shane is confined to a wheelchair. He is diagnosed with Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a genetic disease that is transmitted from generation to generation.

He is now 29 years old, and here is his amazing story about finding true love and being tremendously strong-willed in the face of obstacles.

A few years back, Shane grabbed the eye of Rain Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute on “The Office.” It was Rainn’s fascination with Shane’s story that ultimately led her to produce a short film on him.

Shane Burcaw’s Short Film

Shortly after the documentary aired, Shane received an outpouring of love and support from people all over the world. Strangers emailed him to tell him how much they were inspired by his story and his determination to face the challenges of adversity. Hannah’s email was the kindest among the rest.

Hannah’s Email

Shane recalls his reaction to Hannah’s email, that she said he was funny and that they had a lot in common. When she emailed him, she used parentheses in a way that “like just did it for me.”

His wit and knowledge had also helped him solve most of his challenges, Shane explained that he grew up with a thick layer of skin. And that’s where he developed his sense of humor and sarcasm because else, he’d be always unhappy.

Hannah expresses her feelings regarding Shane:

“I hadn’t met anybody that I really wanted that much time with.”

The couple married in 2020, which made many people jealous because society is cruel and some people can never be happy for others because of their own insecurities.

Kindness Beats All Trolls

People are envious when they see Hannah and her husband together, but Hannah ignores their comments and smiles.

He says they become closer because of his disability. Because their intimacy isn’t just him enjoying it, it’s a big deal to him. That’s because he has this burden complex.

Shane said this to show how happy he was to have Hannah in his life:

“For the first time in my life, I don’t feel like I’m a burden. Hannah is completely there for me and doesn’t see me as a burden.”
