Introducing Shane Burcaw. This guy is hilarious. He has made this video message to Ellen Degeneres in an attempt to hopefully get on her show. Apparently, he’s a big fan. But, he’s also a star in his own right, with a blog (Laughing at my Nightmare) that has 300,000 readers. Here is the bio from his blog:
“Hello, I’m Shane Burcaw. I’m 20 years old and I have a disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy that will eventually kill me. I have been in a wheelchair since I was two. I love to laugh and my life is pretty funny. Allow me to share…
“I recently started a nonprofit to spread positivity and raise money for muscular dystrophy research! To learn more and to support us visit laughingatmynightmare.com
Also, I am a Junior at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, studying English.
Circa Survive keeps me sane.”
Who knows. Maybe we’ll be seeing him on Ellen sometimes soon. Good luck, Shane.
