The 335 Heart Foundation, Inc. was founded by the Smith Family (Jeff & Kristina) of Mooresville, North Carolina. Their daughter, Morgan Avery, was born with a congenital heart defect, Truncus Arteriosis, on July 12, 2014. She received open heart surgery to correct the structure of her heart on July 16th 2014 at Levines Children’s Hospital in Charlotte by one of the best pediatric cardiology teams in the country. Morgan’s repair was VERY successful and she recovered extremely well. She was released from the hospital just 10 days post operation, on the same day she turned 2 weeks old. She thrived at home for a little over 2 months, gaining weight, hitting milestones and being loved.
The early morning of October 9th, 2014 Morgan passed away from Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The Smith Family, was shocked, devastated and full of grief. However, in the wake of her passing, they became determined to create a positive legacy for their daughter by forming the 335 Heart Foundation (335HF). 335 Heart Foundation has a mission to provide charitable support and services to families with children that have a CHD. Support is focused on children going through a procedure and recovery, or when a CHD warrior loses their fight and the family needs financial assistance for funeral costs.
