Russ will need a double bypass heart surgery as soon as his heart gets stronger, as well as extensive rehabilitation. Unfortunately, Russ was in between insurance companies at the time of his heart attack, and currently does not have health insurance.
Russ has been a pillar of hope and inspiration for adults and children alike all across the Treasure Valley and North West as the executive director of the non-profit organization The Ryan J. Poe Foundation, and the inspirational youth program, Elevate Your Life, aiming to keep underprivileged and at-risk youth on the right path. Now that Russ is unable to work, we his family are reaching out and asking our community to rise up behind him and give him the tools he needs for recovery, and to support him in the same way he has supported all of us! We ask that you consider making a donation, no matter how big or how small, to help cover medical expenses and cost of living, which have fallen onto the shoulders of his family. We want Russ's recovery to be as smooth and worry-free as possible.
Thank you all for your prayers, we are very thankful for them, and they have had a very positive impact.
With love and gratitude,
