Get Involved

How can you help us keep our promise to Ava?

  • Research, research, research! Educate yourself so you can help spread awareness about Congenital Heart Defects.
  • Do you know someone that has a child with a CHD? Reach out to them.  Whether it be a phone call or a card to let them know you're thinking of them or a donation of food, money, gift cards, etc, to help with the expense of extended hospitalization and/or travel for doctor's appointments, therapies, etc. 
  • Make a contribution to A Heart Like Ava. Every penny donated will be used to help our fellow heart families. At this point, our desire is to reach out to heart families at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, as well as families within our local area (Gallia & Lawrence Counties in Ohio, and Cabell & Mason Counties in West Virginia).
  • Watch for upcoming events including a 5K and golf outing. 
  • We are always accepting donations for care packages! Below are common items that we include in the packages: 
    • Body Wash
