  • Russ Heath Speaks About Hero Initiative!

    Iím a pretty lucky guy. At 86 years old and with a bum knee (or two!), things are just a little more difficult. But Hero Initiative has been able to help me with finances, smooth over some medical expenses, and find me some very nice-paying art jobs. And now, one of their associates has just helped me in a new and immense way.
