About me: My name is Heidi I joined Help for Heroes about 3 years ago when my husband had a major break down and was later told he had PTSD.
Being a Band of Sisters has changed my life. Things that I would have once struggled with I look at in a completely different way. This is because of talking to other Band of Sisters and finding out things they do to cope.
Getting involved with designing a scarf for Help for Heroes: I decided to take up the offer of designing a new scarf for Help for Heroes because of my love for arts and crafts and felt that this was an opportunity to try something completely different.
Making this scarf has made me feel really good about myself and given me things to look forward to (like seeing the finished product) I have also enjoyed making some new friends.
How does art and being creative help you: I am very creative in my work as I run my own photo booth company so this means designing and making guest books for my customers.
Without Help for Heroes I don't know where I would be they have helped my family through some really tough times.
