A Note From Our Founder

The Reason for the Charlie Girl Foundation

Charlotte Ava – “Charlie Girl”

As Charlie's parents, we believe that she lived for a purpose. Strength, peace, compassion, generosity and love are the lights that she shined in her life and through her illness. Now, after her death, we want to reflect those lights and make them grow.

The intent of this foundation is to support families like ours:

  • Through the generous donations of others financially supporting children and families faced with the challenges of congenital heart defects

  • By inspiring peace during adversity and compassion during hardship through our words and acts of service to children and families dealing with congenital heart defects

  • By showing love and strength to the children and families fighting heart disease while we raise awareness and support for research-based solutions for congenital heart defects
