Each CanCuddler is American Made in the U.S.A., crafted and designed by a military spouse and disabled veteran. A portion of your purchase goes to support our mission to serve injured veterans, first responders, and their spouses at Patriots Cove.
Meet the Founders of CanCuddler®
Jeff served in the Army 24 years. After his service was cut short due to injuries sustained in Iraq, Melissa needed to end her career to advocate and care for Jeff. She opened an Etsy shop in 2013 and CanCuddler was born.
Melissa never imagined that this would end up saving Jeff’s life. His first surgery caused serious issues, and Melissa had to fight for Jeff to receive the care that he needed. If not for CanCuddler®, Jeff would likely not be here today. Though he faces daily physical and emotional struggles just as many of our wounded warriors, he now helps with 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 wounded 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 allows our family to volunteer our time at Patriots Cove. The free KOOZIE® in your order is simply a token of our appreciation and support for allowing us to serve those who served us.
