Hopey's Heart Foundation

The Hopey's Heart Foundation was formed in memory of Tina Charles' late aunt Maureen "Hopey" Vaz, who died of multiple organ failure on March 9th, 2013. Hopey was known for having a very giving heart and when her own heart failed it was a tragic loss to her family and an eye-opener to Charles, who prior to the passing of her aunt, made a $14,775 donation for ten Automated External Defibrillators (AED) to the New York Department of Education and the Wes Leonard Heart Team.

The Wes Leonard Heart Team is dedicated to purchasing and distributing AEDs to schools in and around the State of Michigan.. Wes Leonard was a basketball player at Fennville High who died of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) at the end of his basketball game in March 2011.
