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 her.

Please be cautious of any events or websites not listed on this site that claim to be raising money for our Katy.


Katy and Al can be contacted at the following email:

See the "Katy is Strong" blog for ways to send the Hayes family your well-wishes and words of encouragement and to follow their ongoing story.
