Ava’s Heart is a community partner with One Legacy. Without their financial support we would not be able to operate. They sponsor our events and are a Patron at Ava’s House. CEO Tom Mone is our greatest mentor and we support each others missions. One Legacy, procures organs and they are unable to assist organ donors financially. A huge part of our relationship is being able to assist the donor families whose family member saves lives.
