Often Awesome

Staff Pick

A few months ago, our cover story featured All Aces Media’s Andy Coon, a Charleston-based documentary filmmaker who created Often Awesome. The series was an ALS love story about Coon’s friend Tim LaFollette, who battled ALS for two years, and his girlfriend Kaylan Szafranski, who stuck by his side for what they tried to see as an adventure. Though there’s a lot of heartache, the story is also full of inspiration, with friends and strangers rallying behind the couple, dozens upon dozens of whom even got tatted up as a fundraiser and a show of solidarity for LaFollette. It still warms our hearts just thinking about it. —Kelly Rae Smith
