Ravean, the smart heated jacket, battery-free heated gloves, and heated hoodie line is becoming more than just outerwear. Ravean has also taken off in popularity with people who have trouble staying warm indoors, many of whom have illnesses that affect their body temperature.

For Ravean creative director and co-founder Jon Bybee, this hits very close to home, in fact in his home. Bybee's mother is battling terminal cancer, and her son’s jacket is now providing much needed warmth and comfort.

“My mom has lost 40 pounds because of her cancer and she is always cold,” said an emotional Bybee. “No matter how high she heats the house, and how many blankets she wraps herself in, she always feels a chill. When we started to hear that our jackets were being ordered by people with the same issue, we knew she had to try a Ravean - so as soon as one came off the manufacturing run in her size, we went straight to her house.”

The moment that Jon delivers the jacket to his mom is captured in this heart-warming and emotional video.

“I appreciate it so much, I was afraid I was going to miss out on all this,” Bybee’s mom says in the video.

“I’m glad we could get this for you and I hope it helps Mom,” said Bybee. “So you can be warm, plus it probably helps out with your heating bill,” Bybee added, trying to add a bit of levity to the emotional moment.

“To have Jonathan present me with one of his first heated hoodies warmed my heart and my entire body. The jacket makes me feel nice and warm and I’m especially happy that my son’s jackets are helping others like me who need warmth,” added Bybee’s mom.

Since the beginning of its very successful crowdfunding efforts which have raised more than $1.4-million from over 7,000 backers, the Ravean team discovered that their creation had a use that they didn’t think of originally. Requests started coming in from people battling cancer and other illnesses that made it difficult for them to stay warm.

“I lost 40 pounds and most of that was body fat that keeps you warm and insulated, and I won’t be getting it back, so this will help a lot,” said Bybee’s mom. “I’m always cold so this feels really really good.”
