Michael’s unfortunately drowning accident led to him losing his life at the age of 14 on June 17, 2012. This hardship became the platform to help individuals with disabilities. Being that you do not know when they are hurting or in danger of the world. Michael Hearts Academy is here to assist as many individuals as possible with social skills in the community and educate the community to allow individuals to work.
