Haley Demyanovich

CTO

Tina and I grew up together. Since the age of about 6 years old, we did gymnastics together and from that early age, we had a friendship like no other. Throughout the course of our lives, we have remained close in spite of our geographical distances. Watching your best friend journey through the decision to amputate her leg in an attempt to gain back quality of life, watch through struggles and revisions, and finding a new “normal” wasn’t easy. But this girl, has determination like no other, and incredible drive to help others. When she asked if I would be a part of her Less Leg More Heart (LLMH) journey, I agreed without hesitation.

With a background in psychology and Orthopaedic trauma, I thrive on helping others recover from severe trauma both emotionally and physically. The mission of LLMH aligns perfectly with my own personal set of values, that is, advocating for people who are temporarily unable or not sure where to begin to advocate for themselves, assist by injecting positivity into situations which seem hopeless, and being a part of the positive trajectory that comes with healing. My “why” for supporting this wonderful organization, is not only my immeasurable love for its founder, but for the hope and healing it has the potential to do.

Terry Freeman

Treasurer 

When Terry Freeman engages in her work as Secretary/Treasurer for the non-profit organization Less Leg More Heart, she is doing so much more than drafting minutes and expanding upon her 17 years of experience as an office manager and 14 years in education. Terry is the mother of Christina Hurley; founder of Less Leg More Heart charity and has been by her side throughout her many surgeries, rehabilitation’s, and emotional blows as she endured (and wrestled mightily against) setbacks and physical and personal loss again and again. For Terry, every person she can help is akin to helping her own daughter, and she knows the pain of their suffering. Like Tina, Terry shares her affinity for empathy borne of deeply personal experience.

Terry is devoted to being a vital part of a wonderful team of people who are dedicated to the importance of providing much needed support, thoughtful guidance, resources, and medical advocacy for patients and families that are struggling under the burden of traumatic events.

Terry has many interests, including rowing and helping to organize major events for her beloved sport. But at her core is a fierce devotion to the well-being of those whom she loves and a maternal desire to love those whom she helps. She has joined her daughter and a team of admirable individuals in the never-ending quest to provide healing, help and hope to others.
