About Squirmy and Grubs

WHO ARE WE?

We are Hannah and Shane, better known by our YouTube name: Squirmy and Grubs. We are in love, and we document our relationship in vlogs posted several times per week.

Shane was born with a disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy that makes his muscles extremely weak. He uses a wheelchair for mobility, and requires help with most activities of daily life. Hannah was not born with any known diseases; although her bathroom tendencies suggest there might be some undiagnosed bowel issues lurking inside her.

Hannah graduated from Carleton College with a degree in sociology. Shane is an author of several books, and the President of a nonprofit organization that assists people living with muscular dystrophy. We live together near Minneapolis, Minnesota.

WHY DO WE MAKE VIDEOS?

Early in our relationship, we discovered that many people are shocked/confused/disturbed by the fact that we are a couple. There are a variety of highly damaging stigmas surrounding disability in our society, one of which being the idea that people with disabilities are incapable or unworthy of romantic relationships.

Don’t believe us? Here are just a few of the thousands of horrible comments we receive on our videos:

  • “I’d honestly prefer an abusive man over a disabled one.”
  • “This relationship seems totally inappropriate and wrong. Very creepy and not right.”
  • “Why would a beautiful girl date that thing?”
  • “This feels so wrong. I can’t trust this girl.”

Our goal is to change the widespread misunderstanding of disability that leads people to make comments like these. We want to show the world that an interabled relationship like ours can be just as satisfying, exciting, emotional, and “normal” as any other!

(We also just have a lot of fun creating vlogs together. We both love making others laugh, and our videos give us an opportunity to do that while we work to educate people.)

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT?

We are both extremely eager to improve and expand the content that we create for you. Over the past year, we’ve learned that planning, filming, and editing quality videos requires a significant amount of time, energy, and financial resources. Our dream life is to be able to spend our days creating these vlogs for you, but we also need to survive.

We believe that our story is changing the world in a positive and important way, and our hope is that we can continue sharing our life and our adventures with you for a long time. Your support in that endeavor means more to us than we can ever explain. Thank you!
