Come Spend A Day With Us!



18 year old Lauren from Montana was in a forklift accident in late October 2019 which crushed him from the pelvis down. This resulted in amputation from the waist down (Hemicorporectomy) as well as his left hand.  This video shows a glimpse into their daily life as they self isolate to keep Lauren safe from Co-Vid19.

Do you have a disability and need COVID-19 Resource Relief?



To donate or apply, please visit: https://www.laughingatmynightmare.com...

Here is a message from Shane about the importance of this program. Thank you so much for all of your donations!

Dear Lovely Humans,

My emotions surrounding the following announcement are complicated. I’m nervous for the ever-increasing severity of the current pandemic, but also grateful to be in a position to help. I’m excited, because we’ve developed a program that I believe will help a lot of people who are struggling right now, and I’m optimistically hopeful that many of you will join me to amplify our impact.

Here’s what’s up: Laughing At My Nightmare, Inc. is beyond pleased to unveil a brand new program that we have created to help the disability community during this time of uncertainty, isolation, and fear. Before I explain this simple program, please know that for the first time in our company history, we are opening up applications to individuals with ANY disability/diagnosis/chronic illness. Supporting the muscular dystrophy community is still at the heart of our services, but our board of directors felt that this specific program should be open to people with ALL disabilities.

The program is called COVID-19 Resource Relief, and it’s a way for people living with a disability to apply for a $100 Visa Gift Card to help with purchasing essential items during these difficult times. The simple application is now available at the link above, and if you’re approved, the gift card will be mailed directly to your home.

To kick off this program, Hannah and I have donated $2,000 to fund the first 20 applications. We have heard from so many of you how the quarantines and social distancing requirements have drastically affected your financial situation, and we want to use our platform to help. Our hope is that all of you who are able will consider donating $1 to $10 to help us fund 30, 40, 50+ more urgent applications. The link to donate is also above. Please consider joining us in supporting this vital program.

For many of us who live with a disability, quarantine is not a choice, but a necessity for survival. I highly encourage anyone with a disability who is in need of essential items to apply today.

Again, if you are reading this and you’re able to donate a dollar or two, your gift will help us fund MANY more applications.
