It seems like every other day I receive messages and comments from fans around the world telling us how much they enjoy our videos and how they help them when they’re feeling down.
People dealing with depression, anxiety or illness have all expressed how the videos of Cole and Marmalade are a bright spot during their day and help put a smile on their face no matter what they’re going through.
It’s great to receive messages like this knowing that the content we create as a positive effect on people who need it the most and further fuels my desire to keep creating entertaining and educational videos.
We recently had the pleasure of meeting a young lady named Hannah Kiresuk who is one of Cole and Marmalade’s biggest fans! Hannah as battled Juvenile Myasthenia Gravis (MG) for the past 4 years and currently needs to raise $500,000 for a life saving bone marrow transplant.
Her body as rejected all other treatments for MG… She needs a bone marrow transplant, but because this treatment is not FDA approved, her insurance will not cover it.
Before she became sick Hannah was a very active teen, In 7th grade she was already in highschool varsity skiing. She misses it so much…
She got accepted to the University of Minnesota a few years ago, but had to cancel those plans because she was just too sick and had too many treatments to make college life feasible 🙁
She loves this group called Beads of Courage… For every treatment or procedure, she gets a special glass bead… Hannah has thousands!
Beads of Courage is a really awesome program that gives art to children with serious illnesses. It’s encouraging, and gives the kids mile markers for each procedure. http://www.beadsofcourage.org/
None of us should ever feel alone in our struggles, Cole and Marmalade have helped us so much personally since they came into our lives… Jess deals with anxiety on a daily basis and she swears that Cole can sense when she’s having a rough time and comes over to comfort her and we have both dealt with depression in the past as well.
So we decided to create the Promote Pawsitivity campaign so people can create an amazing support circle online and across the world to help each of us find the joy in life we all deserve.
We created a logo and started selling shirts and hoodie online… Purrchase Here!
100% of the proceeds from this campaign will be donated to Hannah Kiresuk and her family, you can learn more about Hannah and donate directly here: http://www.cotaforhannahk.com/
