Artist Helena Keeffe created the first Missing Husband Pillow to combat a growing problem among couples… fellowships. Her husband Joe was in Canada for an 8 month long fellowship. She needed something to cuddle, squeeze and fight with while he was away. Soon after, her SF-based friend, Cynthia, lost her husband to an 11 month NY fellowship. Helena made Cynthia a Missing Husband Pillow of Steve. Pictured above is Joe reunited with his pillow (left) and Steve reunited with his (right).
