Our goal is to help others who are grieving after the loss of loved ones and to help them find the resources to cope with the stress and depression of the most shocking time of their lives. We will let them know that even with their loss they are still loved and needed..
The foundation was started in 2019 when our daughter, sister, best friend and marine lost her life as she was attending a personal training academy in Orlando, Florida. Her goal was to help others to be the best that they could be and she had the heart and soul to do it.
Our Hero Deseray J. Smith
Deseray was born February 3, 1990 in Huntingdon, PA. She was a great daughter, loving sister, best friend, United States Marine, and an organ, tissue, and retina donor. Her favorite season of the year was autumn.
Her decision to be an organ donor saved four lives with her donation of organs, tissue, and her retinas to give sight to the blind. She gave the gift of life to four complete strangers, and the gift of sight to another two complete strangers.
Deseray loved her family and friends deeply. She graduated from Tyrone High School in 2008, where she was part of the woman's soccer team. She loved her dog Max and everyone's pets as well. She liked to bake and cook for her family and friends. She was aspiring to be a professional wrestler and sports trainer; she wanted to to help everyone get in their best shape possible.
Her passions will be missed by everyone she knew, but her legacy lives on through her generous organ donations, as she continued to give of herself in death as she did in life. We will always love and miss her. Semper Fi.
