The Makers of CanCuddler®
Jeff served our wonderful country for 24 years. After his service was cut short due to injuries sustained in Iraq, I quickly realized that I needed to end my career and stay home to care for my hero. With no experience in embroidery or sewing, but full of determination to earn grocery money, I opened an Etsy shop in 2013, and was able to quit my day job.
I never imagined that this would literally end up saving Jeff’s life. His first surgery caused serious issues that I was able to monitor and advocate for his care. If not for CanCuddler®, my hero would likely not be here today. Though he faces daily physical and emotional struggles just as many of our wounded warriors, he now partners with me at CanCuddler®,along with our daughter Kaitlyn.
Our family is passionate about helping other military veterans and spouses transition from military to civilian life. In 2017, we founded Patriots Cove, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization on our property in the mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. The Cove provides trout fishing and healing experiences for injured veterans and first responders. Further, we connect and empower their caregivers by providing respite care, wellness training events, and entrepreneurship seminars. www.patriotscove.org
Your purchase in our shop allows our family to volunteer our time at Patriots Cove. The free KOOZIE® is simply a token of our appreciation and support for allowing us to serve those who served us.

In 2017, we founded a nonprofit organization to served those who served us. Patriots Cove began as an environmental effort to restore the Beaver Run Waterway in Noxen, Pennsylvania. Over a six month period, we built a stream habitable to native brook trout. As an avid outdoorsmen, Jeff recognized the healing energy nature has to offer. He envisioned a place for wounded veterans, such as himself, to enjoy the great outdoors. We decided to continue expanding our mission and build a wheelchair accessible facility to accommodate emotional and physical injuries our military and first responders often incur from the line of duty. We now host fishing retreats for wounded patriots to challenge themselves, enjoy the tranquility of nature, and discover a new purpose in life. Our fishing program provides free lodging, meals, fishing gear, and safety equipment to wounded veterans and first responders, as well as their caregivers. By supporting Custom Swag Boutique, you are giving us the time and resources to help those who have served. If you are a veteran, first responder, or caregiver, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
