Upon college graduation, Heinsohn was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 23. After 3 craniotomies, 12 months of chemo, seizure complications, cognitive redevelopment, depression, and an economic recession, he discovered resilience. Incredible opportunities followed.
Within 5 years, Heinsohn developed a portfolio (at a start up) with the biggest names in sports and corporate sponsorship. An abbreviated client roster includes the New York Yankees, NASCAR, Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Blackhawks, The SEC, Feld Motorsports, San Francisco Giants, Minnesota Vikings, The National Sports Forum, SportsBusiness Journal, Red Bull, MillerCoors, Nike, Samsung, GoPro, Best Buy, and over 60 NCAA (D1 & D2) properties.
In 2010, Danny founded My Hometown Heroes (MHH), a scholarship fund for young adult cancer survivors. Since 2015, MHH has awarded 26 scholarships to college bound survivors from across the United States. From 2016 through 2020, the cumulative student debt among young adult cancer survivors between 15 and 39 will be over $5 Billion. His goal in 2016 is to begin scaling up the foundation to award $1,000,000 in scholarships by 2020, his 20th year of brain cancer remission.
