The Alba Carter Foundation is an non-profit started by Alba's family when they learned what it was like to be in the hospital and faced some very scary times with their daughter Alba, when she received a heart transplant, due to Turner's Syndrome. They wanted a way to give back and so with the Alba Carter Foundation, they can.

The goal of Greyson's Advocates is to provide information and materials to families of children facing significant medical diagnoses or extended hospital stays in an effort to allow them to focus on being advocates for their children. This will primarily be achieved through distribution of the Greyson's Advocates Medical Journal and hospital gift bags. The Medical Journal will help families keep all relevant medical information in one location, and provides a historical record of a child's medical procedures. Hospital gift bags will include toiletries, snacks, and other items which may be useful to families while in the hospital. When possible, Greyson's Advocates will connect families with other organizations that may be able to help with their specific needs.
