As Gibson says on her website, “I had a dream and I followed it by starting up the Have a Hart Foundation.”

Have a Hart is a non-profit organization that hopes to pay league registration fees for families dealing with cancer, distribute new or gently used sports equipment and raise money for cancer awareness.

Gibson presented her dream for Have a Hart to the William S. Hart Union High School District Board of Directors at their meeting on Jan. 23.
