Dublin-based designer and dad Stephen Crowley decided to use his Photoshop skills to have some fun with his family and relatives. He photoshopped his 18-month-old daughter Hannah into situations that would give anyone a heart attack – like driving a car, holding a kitchen knife, climbing a ladder alone, etc. The images went viral online when Stephen shared them on Reddit where it became the 12th most popular Reddit link of all time with over 152,000 upvotes.
But it’s not just about fun and games. Stephen wants to use this viral opportunity to raise awareness for a rare immune disorder called HLH that his daughter was suffering from. From the age of 4 to 10 months, Hannah spent most of her time in the hospital receiving chemo therapy until a bone marrow transplant saved her life. Out of 27 million donors worldwide, only 3 were deemed suitable for Hannah.
Stephen is now using the spotlight to encourage people to become bone marrow donors through the National Marrow Donor Program, Be The Match. Check out the images below.
Stephen told PetaPixel that “most of the reactions have been positive,” but there is “the odd person not getting the joke and commenting I “should be shot”.
