For Eva this hits close to home, as her own sister Liza was born with developmental disabilities. For that reason she started a nonprofit organization based in San Antonio called Eva’s Heroes. As mentioned on the site, Eva's Heroes "is an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of those intellectual special needs by providing an inclusive setting built on four tenets- interact, grow, learn and love."
Eva had this to say about her hero, her sister Liza. “I was extremely fortunate to grow up with an intellectually disabled sister. My mother became a special education teacher because of her and therefore I have been involved with all facets of this disability since I could walk and talk.”
