Katy Hayes

After giving birth to her third child in February, 2010, Katy Hayes developed a life threatening Strep A infection that took her arms, legs, and many organs. Thankfully, she survived and is on the road to recovery. With your help, she can work toward having a normal, productive life.

Her friends, family, and the community (near and far) have come together to support this fund.
