About Us

HIV Experience Resources Organization (HERO),  is a non-profit  501(3)(c) organization. It was founded by Michael Cavnaugh, former Vice President of Event Presentation at Madison Square Garden, who realized there was not an online resource to navigate a complicated system to get help if you are newly diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.

HERO is dedicated to helping people get around and get through the system that hinders timely assistance for people who need it. HERO also features Entertainment News, Celebrity Interviews and On The Town updates supporting the services , activities and events of our partners. We are committed to entertaining you and keeping your spirits up where they should be. We also promote safety and fight the spread of the disease through our celebrity interviews.

Get Help: Our resource pages give you quick links and information on getting assistance, free confidential testing and medical services regardless of your ability to pay.

Video/Entertainment: Entertainment news and celebrity interviews, our Broadway Hero of the month interviews and coverage of the activities and events of our partners.

Events: The most exciting events not to be missed benefiting our partners who help people newly diagnosed and people living with HIV/AIDS and the LGBT community.

We are 100% volunteer based. Want To Help? Get Involved
