Two big changes recently happened to Russ Hicks. His wife Carol was diagnosed with cancer and passed away.
“I tell you right after Carol died I was completely rudderless and almost berserk. There was a time, a week afterward, at work where they said ‘you 'gotta go home and we'll drive you home!'”
Shortly after that, Hicks got laid off from his job of 22 years at a factory warehouse.
“And so here I am, within a year’s time I’d lost my wife and my job.”
