About Ava's Heart

AVA’S HEART is a unique nonprofit charity dedicated to providing financial assistance for organ transplant patients who cannot afford necessary treatment and care. Founded by heart transplant recipient Ava Kaufman, Ava’s Heart has quickly become the primary organization in the US for transplant patients and their families. We provide pre-transplant and post-transplant patients a wide variety of basic essentials not covered by insurance like housing, food, gas, medications, strollers, car seats, dental work, hearing aids, etc. We will even upgrade the electricity in a home that is not up to code so their mechanical device (LVAD or artificial heart) will work reliably. Without outside financial assistance, many families go broke, or even worse, some patients do not survive. Ava’s Heart also provides emotional and psychological support, as well as other resources and refuge for both transplant patients on the waiting list, as well as those who now have to deal with the realities of post-transplant care.
